Deafblind Enablement's mission is to enable people who live with a sight and hearing loss to gain access to their community and existing services with dignity, respect, control and choice.

To achieve this, creating deafblind awareness on a national scale is vital. There are an estimated 356,000 deafblind people nationally, www.sense.org.uk/urgency, 2010,with a rapidly growing population of older people and the Government's Vision for Adult Social Care - helping to develop the Big Society with personalisation and provision of individual services, your help is definitely needed for this disadvantaged group.
