The Scottish Council on Deafness (SCoD – www.scod.org.uk) is consulting with people in Angus who have a hearing loss and/or a sight loss and their carers who may use the sensory impairment services provided by North East Sensory Services (NESS).

The services are:

The Social Work Services for children and adults who are deaf – provided by NESS;

The Guide/Communicator Service for people who are Deafblind – provided by NESS; and

The Specialist Rehabilitation Related Services for People with a Visual Impairment – provided by NESS.

We are keen to find out what you think of the present services and what your ideal service would look like.

If you:

• Have both a sight loss and a hearing loss; or
• Are deafblind; or
• Are a carer for someone who has a sight loss and a hearing loss; or
• Are a parent for a child who has a sight loss and a hearing loss;

we would appreciate it if you would take 15 minutes to fill in the questionnaire below to tell us about the Guide/Communicator services.

A carer can be a friend or a family member or someone from your community - someone who doesn't get paid to look after you.

Your response will be included in our report to the Council. The report will help the Council maintain and design services that are “fit for purpose” and suit the people who use them. The Scottish Council on Deafness is carrying out this work with the assistance of the Scottish Council on Visual Impairment (SCOVI).
