New Sensory Service in Halton

Halton Sensory Service

Those suffering from vision or hearing loss in Halton now have access to a specialised support service.

Halton Sensory Services opened on March 27 by the Mayor of Halton in 126 Widnes Road, Widnes, and will be a hub where residents can access information and support under one roof.

There will be a team of specialist staff experienced in sight and hearing loss, vision impairment and deafness available for general enquiries or appointments in rehabilitation, aids and adaptations.

Home visits can also be arranged for people with mobility or health issues.

The partners, Vision Support, Deafness Resource Centre and Halton Borough Council, are working together to establish the fully integrated sensory service, reducing the need for residents to contact different organisations for support with their sensory needs.

The service will also make use of a mobile unit to go to into communities to reach out to more isolated residents and to inform people of the support available.

A spokesperson for Halton Borough Council said: "Halton Sensory Services and the opening of the new base in Widnes will make a real difference to the quality of life and wellbeing of people living with sensory loss in Halton."

You can contact them on 0151 511 8801.
