  • Deaf Advice Sessions (DAS) for BSL users
  • BSL interpreter

What an assessment is

We start by looking at how your sensory loss affects your day-to-day life. We call this process an assessment and this will usually take place in your home.

We will talk with you about the kind of help you think you need and agree together on what would best support you.

Other information

We are unable to offer medical advice/treatment, hearing aids, magnifiers or glasses. If you need support in this area you would need to contact your GP.
