Employment guides from Sense

Sense, the organisation for people with dual sensory loss, has carried out research into the barriers which face deafblind people who are looking for work, and produced three employment guides to help address some of the issues raised.

The guides are:

  • 'A guide for employers', which gives an introduction to important things they should be aware of when employing someone with sensory impairments.
  • 'I want to work - an employment guide for people with sensory impairments' provides information, guidance, and useful resources for people with sensory impairments who are both looking for work or currently employed.
  • 'Employment factsheet for healthcare workers' contains information to raise awareness of deafblindness, and outlines the support available when someone who is deafblind wishes to work.
