Adult Social Care - Remaining Independent

Sensory Service

The Sensory Service provides support for people living with sight loss, hearing loss or multiple sensory impairments.

It is currently provided by the Royal National Institute for Deaf People (RNID) (formerly Action on Hearing Loss). They undertake our statutory duties for us to provide specialist individual assessments. The service maintains local registers of people with a sensory impairment. 

They work with people to promote and support independence. They provide information and access to a wide variety of resources, support and advice.

RNID can be contacted on 01983 529533.


Sensory service user experience survey 2021

We are looking at how to provide services for people with hearing or sight problems in the future. We want to make sure that the support services we arrange on the Island are of the highest quality. We also want to help people to maintain and improve their independence.  We are interested in what you think and we value your experience, knowledge and comments. This will help us to shape the service for the future.

We would be grateful if you would complete the short survey. All results will be considered in service planning.  The survey should take 5 - 10 minutes to complete.

The closing date for this survey is Saturday 14 August 2021.
