ECL Sensory Service
Our sensory impairment service supports people who have a sight loss, hearing loss or combined sight and hearing loss, to maintain independence and dignity in every aspect of daily life.
Due to the increased usage of facemasks during Covid-19, people who are hard of hearing or Deaf have been unable to rely on lip-reading as a form of communication.
ECL Sensory Services have a dedicated team of sensory specialists delivering services across Essex and beyond. The team's aim is to ensure that people can access the correct support, information and advice at the right time, in the right place and in the right way.
Working in partnership with local and national organisations, ECL Sensory Services deliver high quality services that are focused on early intervention and maximising independence for people living with sensory impairments (visual, hard of hearing / deaf or dual sensory impairment). With a number of our ECL Sensory team living with a sensory impairment, our services are unique and provide person-centred support, which includes:
Delivering person-centred services to people with sight, hearing and dual sensory loss.
An invaluable opportunity to learn directly from those living with sight and hearing impairments.
Supporting organisations to consider ways they could improve access to their services.
Become a Sensory Champion through training and linking in with our team and local sensory services.
