Services for people with sensory disabilities

If you are Deaf, visually impaired, hearing impaired or have a significant combination of hearing and sight loss, we can provide support and advice to you and, if appropriate, your carer, which may help you to live more independently.

The specialist countywide Devon Sensory Team provides services to people who:

  • are visually impaired
  • are Deaf
  • have an acquired hearing loss
  • are deafblind (sometimes known as a dual sensory impairment – a significant combination of hearing and sight loss).

You can contact the Devon Sensory Team via Care Direct on 0345 1551 007 or email

We have a Provider Engagement Network for organisations interested in providing services for people with disabilities in Devon.

Local support groups and some national organisations can be found on our Community Directory website.

Alternatively, there are other national organisations you may find helpful.
