We provide specialist information, guidance and support for adults, children and young people living in Lincolnshire with sight and/or hearing loss, as well as families and carers.
Our team understand the practical and emotional challenges that people with sensory loss can face in their everyday lives. We focus on promoting independence, wellbeing and accessibility. Our aim is to help people maintain independence and dignity in every aspect of their lives, and we work closely with carers, families and other organisations to increase their understanding about sensory loss.
