Sense Scotland works with children and adults who have communication support needs because of deafblindness, sensory impairment, learning and physical disabilities. One of our key areas of expertise is communication. Working closely with people, often on a one to one basis, we aim to find out what their aspirations are and how they want to live their lives. Our advisers work together with individuals, families, carers and other professionals to ensure people receive the most appropriate support.
We began as a family support group in the 1970's, became a registered Scottish charity in 1985 and have since developed into a significant voluntary organisation, which today supports over 1000 families and service users in Scotland.
We offer a broad range and depth of services, not only to children and adults with disabilities, but also to families and carers, these include,
• Residential housing and supported living
• Residential respite short breaks for children and adults
• Summer holiday programme
• Outdoor activities
• Visual arts, music, drama and woodcraft
• Healthy living support and advice
• Family advice and support
• Day care
