Sense is a national charity that supports people who are deafblind, have sensory impairments or complex needs, to enjoy more independent lives. Our expertise in supporting individuals with communication needs benefits people of all ages, as well as their families and carers. We provide information and advice, offer a wide range of flexible services and campaign passionately for the rights of people we serve.


Founded in 1955 by a group of families affected by rubella, Sense developed specialist skills and knowledge in supporting people to communicate, express themselves and grow in independence. This experience now enables Sense to help people with a much wider range of disabilities.


Our specialist services are built around the wishes and needs of the individual, supporting people to be as independent as possible. Our services include a range of housing options, resource centres, educational support, short breaks and arts, sport and wellbeing programmes.
