Deafblind UK - Services for people who are Deafblind
Deafblind UK is a national charity supporting people with sight and hearing loss to live the lives they want.
Deafblind UK has a proud history spanning 90 years. Founded in 1928 by a small group of deafblind people and their carers, the then named National Deaf-Blind Helpers League set out to improve social conditions for people who were deafblind encouraging confidence and providing practical help. Despite the passing of time, these are the same things that matter to people with deafblindness today and the things Deafblind UK continues to deliver today.
We provide a number of services for Deafblind People to access:
Home support, Communication and guiding services - We can support at home or in the community to help with day to day activities, and our Communicator guides help to support and maintain independence.
