Mission

Deafblind UK is a membership organisation of, and governed by, people who are deafblind or have both a sight and hearing loss. We champion the rights and interests of all people who are deafblind or have a combined sight and hearing loss and deliver quality services to give these individuals autonomy and control over their lives. Through our work we support equality, independence and choice.

Our overarching goals
 

- To work towards a more equal society by raising awareness and understanding of deafblindness by engaging with people who have a sight and hearing loss, the Government and other organisations, individuals and communities.

- To enable people with both a sight and hearing loss to remain in their own homes and participate in their local communities.  

- To provide relevant, high quality Peer Support, Befriending and Information and Advice services to people with a dual sensory loss, helping them to; live independently, interact with others, understand their rights and access their entitlements.

Deafblind UK also has a befriending service, carers support, and a caravan for respite holidays.

 

Deafblind UK- The London Outreach Project

Deafblind UK has recently started a new project, The London Outreach Project, which focuses on reducing the feeling of isolation and the impact on the mental health of those who suffer from dual impairment within the elderly community (60+).  The project will concentrate on Lambeth, Wandsworth and Southwark as well as other boroughs in London.
