Deafblind Scotland is an award winning national charity and Scotland’s principal authority on meeting the complex needs of people living with acquired deafblindness. Our services include communication / linguistic access advice, navigating self-directed support, information and formatting services, welfare rights support, accredited training, health and wellbeing activities and a specialist guide/communicator service. We are experts in enabling deafblind people to keep healthy, happy and well.
Deafblind Scotland's aim is a society in which deafblind people have the permanent support and recognition necessary to be equal citizens.
Deafblind Scotland aims to:
- We enable deafblind people to develop strategies to communicate and engage meaningfully with the world around them and support individuals and their families and friends to adjust to deafblindness.
- We enable deafblind people to take their rightful place in their local communities and ensure their voices are heard at local and national government levels.
- We campaign for the rights of the deafblind citizens and support deafblind people to be active members of Scottish Parliament’s Cross-Party groups on Visual Impairment and Deafness.
