Sensory Services by Sight for Surrey

Sensory Services by Sight for Surrey is the largest charitable organisation in Surrey working with people who are visually impaired, Deaf, Hard of Hearing or who have combined sight and hearing loss. It began to deliver services to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in February 2016 after securing a contract by Surrey County Council to provide these services. Hearing Loss Advisors at Sensory Services can provide information and support to assist you to manage your hearing loss. The specialist team can work with individuals, families and groups providing:

  • Information about hearing loss
  • Communication skills training
  • Equipment and technology support
  • Communicator Guides who provide specialist support to anyone with a combined sight and hearing loss and enable them to get out and about.

There are many ways hearing loss can affect your daily life. Support from the team is available if, due to hearing loss you are:

  • Unable to participate in conversations with family and friends
  • Feeling isolated, not wanting to go out or socialise
  • Having problems having a conversation on the telephone
  • Find it hard to hear your telephone or doorbell ring
  • Have difficulties at work
  • Struggling to hear announcements on public transport or at public stations

If your hearing loss affects your work you may be entitled to an access to work grant. An Access to Work grant can pay for practical support if you have a disability, health or mental health condition to help you:
■ Start working
■ Stay in work
■ Move into self-employment or start a business

  • The grant is not for business start-up costs.
  • How much you get depends on your circumstances.
  • The money doesn’t have to be paid back and will not affect your other benefits.
