Deafblind Scotland

Deafblind Scotland, the association of deafblind and dual sensory impaired people, is currently running a project called Connect to Welfare Rights, which is aiming to make welfare rights more accessible for deafblind and visually impaired adults.

The project is being run in eleven local authorities including Glasgow.

Through the project, Deafblind can:

  • Provide welfare rights information in different formats
  • Provide advice & support
  • Assist with completing forms
  • Carry out benefit checks
  • Maximise income for people living with a sensory impairment
  • Assist with any enquiries regarding equal access and your rights as a sensory impaired adult

If you know anyone within Dennistoun who requires assistance, or if you would like any further information, please contact Chris Waite or Helen Campbell on wra@deafblindscotland.org.uk or 0141 777 5828.
