DeafBlind Scotland

DeafBlind Scotland

Deafblind Scotland is an award-winning national charity, and for 30+ years, Scotland’s principal authority on meeting the complex needs of individuals with acquired deafblindness. Our focus is to raise the ambitions and expand the lives of Deafblind people, whose lives often centre around losses - loss of sight/hearing, independence, personal freedom, status and having a socially valued role. We do this with a range of support/services includes: communication access advice; information/formatting services; welfare rights support; accredited training; health, wellbeing and skills development programmes; and a specialist guide/communicator service. DbS membership can be the crucial factor in determining whether a deafblind person is able to maintain an independent lifestyle.

Deafblind Scotland’s aim is a society in which deafblind people have the permanent support and recognition necessary to be equal citizens. Deafblind Scotland enables deafblind people to take their rightful place in their local communities and ensures their voices are heard at local and national government levels. We also raise awareness of deafblindness and provide a range of training courses to individuals, organisations and professionals.
