Sense Specialist Services for Children and Young People

What is the service all about?

We know that being a parent of a child who is deafblind or has other complex disabilities can be challenging.

We are here to give your family the personalised support you need for your child, from early childhood through to adulthood.

With the right support, we believe it's possible for everyone to make sense of their world and the world around them. To communicate, connect and take part in life, no matter what.

We support children and young people in lots of different ways - in the home, in the community and at our centres, in their education and transition to adulthood and through our holidays, arts, sport and wellbeing programmes.

We also offer practical help and support to families and carers, including information, advice, short breaks and family events.

Other Details


Some services are provided charitably and are dependent on a families need. Sense works with a number of purchasers to provide a range of services responding to individual needs. They may be financed through a contract with a local authority or some form of individualised funding such as an individual/personal budget. More information can be found on our website
