Action on Hearing Loss is the UK’s largest charity helping people who are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus. We are working for a world where hearing loss doesn’t limit or label people.
Our care and support services are personalised to every individual so that people who are deaf, deafblind or have a hearing loss and other needs can live everyday life the way they want.
Our Leicester Community Support Service provides community support to deaf and deafblind adults who may have additional needs. Our approach is simple: we’ll work alongside you to help you decide what support you want, when you want it, and what you want to change and achieve, so you can reach your goals and live every single day the way you want to. Our staff will meet your individual communication needs.
We can support you with a wide range of activities that will help you to develop and maintain skills and become more involved in your local community. This could include:
• helping you develop hobbies and interests
• developing new skills and becoming more independent
• meeting people and making friends
• using public transport
• finding a job or college course
• doing the things that you enjoy like clubs and leisure activities
Our support is outcome focussed and we use a range of person centred approaches and tools to evidence your steps to independence. We will also continually review your support plan to make sure it meets your needs and to help you to move on to greater independence.
Our Community Services in Leicester have been supporting James in his workplace to help him achieve one of the outcomes from his person centred plan – to get an NVQ qualification in housekeeping. The Manager where James works says: “The benefits of James completing the award are clear to see, it has enhanced him’.
