Map for West Dunbartonshire Council Sensory Impairment Team
The Sensory Impairment Team provides advice, support and information to the carers of sensory impaired people and carry out assessments of carers' needs.
Specialist staff work along with people who have sight or hearing loss to identify ways to overcome difficulties, to assess the practical help they may need and to get support from other services. Members of the team work together with other professionals to assist people who have complex difficulties.
Assistance can include the provision of equipment to help people overcome practical problems.
They also provide awareness training to organisations who are in contact/working with people with a sensory impairment.
