The Sensory Support Team is a service to people who are Visually Impaired, Deaf or Hard of Hearing, or are Deafblind (or dual sensory loss - a significant combination of hearing and sight loss). We support both children and adults with a sensory disability.
Our services might be the only support you need or they might form part of a care package which includes other services from the CRT.
We might also work alongside other services or groups to try to achieve the best possible outcome for you.
The benefits of Sensory Support include
- functional assessments and information
- promotes independence and safety
- improves quality of life
- increases your choice and control
- enables you to access other services
- communications skills
There is one point of contact for people needing support from the service. This is called the NPT Gateway.
