Our outreach teams

We offer support with difficult tasks and activities at home and elsewhere so that Deaf people can lead a more full and independent life. 

How We Help

Our outreach workers are Deaf, or hearing people fluent in BSL, and we develop a personalised plan with each client. 

We offer a wide variety of support, including:

  • Learning skills for daily living
  • Budgeting
  • Applying for jobs 
  • Getting out of the house
  • Taking a course
  • Accessing other services or resources
  • Joining a club or social group

For example, if you need help with your grocery shopping, we can support you in deciding what you want to buy and how to plan a week of meals. We offer support in planning a trip to the shops, and tips for getting the shopping done. It means our clients gain confidence to do things by themselves.

Who does our outreach service support?

We support Deaf adults, specialising in those with mental health challenges, who needs support in their daily life and independence.  All of our clients are referred to us by social services.

What makes our service different?

All of our outreach workers are Deaf or fluent in BSL, and have experience working with Deaf people who have mental health challenges. This means we can get to know clients better and identify what support is needed.
