Deafblind UK

Deafblind UK

Deafblind UK knows that with the right support, deafblind people can live healthier, enjoyable and dignified lives. We are open, accessible and relevant to all deafblind people across England, Wales and Northern Ireland – irrelevant of age, gender and background – offering crucial support including guidance, understanding, emotional support and opportunities that few other agencies can supply. Deafblind UK bridges the gap between our deafblind members and their communities, providing practical solutions and human support in order to improve independence and reduce isolation.

We develop our charitable services in a sustainable way – building good relationships with funders, voluntary and community organisations and developing trading and social enterprise activities. We offer:

An Information & Advice Line, Befriender Service, Carers Support, Website, membership magazine, Peer Support & Social Groups provide those with both sight and hearing impairments plus their carers an opportunity to meet people and make friends.

Deafblind UK has recently started a new project, The London Outreach Project, which focuses on reducing the feeling of isolation and the impact on the mental health of those who suffer from dual impairment within the elderly community (60+). The project will concentrate on Lambeth, Wandsworth and Southwark as well as other boroughs in London.


Requirements for clients -they need to be deaf and blind. Deafblindness ranges from people with some residual sight and hearing to those with profound loss who rely on touch to communicate.
Details on how to access various services are available on the website.
