Service summary

Sense Scotland is a leader in the field of complex communication support needs and promotes the use of innovative services for people who are often marginalised when traditional models of support are used. We offer a range of flexible, responsive services for children, young people and adults whose communication support needs result from a range of impairments including deafblindness; sensory impairment; physical or learning disabilities. Our services are designed alongside people to provide continuity across age groups and we work closely with families and with colleagues from health, education, social work and housing.

Referrals and enquiries are welcomed from people seeking support, carers and professionals.
