Wiltshire Council Vision and Hearing Team

The Hearing and Vision team provide a range of services to people who are blind, have limited or impaired sight, are deaf or have an acquired hearing loss. They also help people who are deafblind, which is also known as dual sensory impairment (a person who has a significant combination of hearing and sight loss). If you are experiencing problems with day-to-day living such as using a telephone, preparing meals or being active in the community, the Hearing and Vision team can help.

  • registration as blind or deaf

  • caring for children
  • living alone/independently
