Deafness Support Network DSN - supporting people with hearing and visual impairments

Description

Deafness Support Network (founded in 1976 as the Cheshire Deaf Society) provides a wide range of support and services for deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people in Cheshire and the surrounding area. The Network provides practical help, advice and specialist support when it's most needed. 

 

Deafness Support Network (DSN) provides a new Integrated Sensory Service for Adults and Children commissioned by Cheshire East Council to run from December 2018 for two years.

 

They provide a comprehensive early help service for residents experiencing vision and/or hearing loss, working closely with Cheshire East Council’s Rehabilitation Officers for People with a Visual Impairment, to provide a coordinated approach to sensory impairment for the people in the county.

 

The service is available for adults, children and young people with sensory impairments across Cheshire East to include those who are:

 

· Visually impaired

· D/deaf

· Have an acquired hearing loss

· Deafblind – sometimes known as a dual sensory loss – people with a significant combination of hearing and sight loss.

The support provided is based on individual need and may include help in increasing life skills, promoting independence, working with conflicts of interest and relationships, as well as coping strategies.
