Sense offers high quality, flexible services across the UK, using skilled staff and a dedicated network of volunteers. We tailor the support we offer to the individual needs of each each person so they can live as independently as possible and participate fully in the lives of their local communities.

Children’s Specialist Services
Children’s Specialist Services is a team of specialist teachers, children’s therapists and children and family support workers that offers a range of services including: help when a child is first diagnosed, assessments and advice to help children learn and develop, plus extra support at times of crisis and transition.
We organise around 25 week-long summer holidays for more than 100 deafblind children and adults each year. Within the adult range (19 years and over), holidays are prioritised by applications from people living at home with their families. We also offer holidays for older people with hearing and sight loss.
We also offer a range of short breaks, including during the day or evening, at weekends and longer planned holidays away from home.
Sense offers a range of supported accommodation services, residential and supported housing options, so that people with sight and hearing impairments can choose which is right for them. Our services are inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and some inspection reports and ratings can be viewed here.
Community resource centres
At our Sense day services and community resource centres around the UK – each predominantly specialising in either children’s or adult care – people are able to choose from a wide range of activities and programmes that can help them to develop their communication and living skills.
