Deafblind UK Information and advice

Whether you have lived with sight and hearing loss for a while or it is new to you, Deafblindness can be difficult to understand. The information at this site will help you to understand deafblindness and how to make the most of life with sight and hearing loss.

Deafblind UK Befriending service

Our befrienders are here to talk, laugh and build lasting friendships with. Living with deafblindness can be lonely and you might find yourself feeling increasingly isolated. That’s why we offer a free befriending service where you can have some regular company from a friendly volunteer, either by phone, text message or email.

Social Groups

Deafblind Cymru's peer support & social groups provide those with both sight and hearing impairments plus their carers an opportunity to meet people and make friends. At regular meetings, all members are encouraged to get involved in the decision making process to determine what activities the group should do, often including social outings and arranging meetings to enjoy guest speakers on subjects of interest.

We can also send you Christmas and birthday cards and put you in touch with other people who are in a similar position to you.

Deafblind UK Care and Support

Our specially trained support workers can visit you at home and work with you to do whatever you want. This might be helping you with post and paying bills, or it might be helping you get to your appointments, to the bank or support with shopping, to help make sure you don’t miss out on any information. They will also support you to carry on with your hobbies, making sure sight and hearing loss doesn’t stop you from doing what you love.

Our supported living accommodation is expertly designed to provide people with combined sight and hearing loss, who may have additional complex needs, with a safe and secure environment to live independently within the wider community.

We can help you to access health and social care, apply for welfare and benefits, research and access local services, understand housing options, investigate leisure and transport options, connect with opportunities to make new friends or try new activities or to find help to fix a problem in the home.
