Sense Scotland works with children and adults who have complex communication support needs because of deafblindness, sensory impairment, learning or physical disability.

Sense Scotland was established by parents of deafblind children in the 1970s and was formalised as a charitable organisation in 1985. One of the key areas of expertise is communication. Working closely with people, often on a one-to-one basis, Sense Scotland aims to find out what peoples aspirations are and how they want to live their lives.

The development of services is assisted by grants from local and central government, fundraising, and some services carry costs which are met by fees.

Sense Scotland services include:

  • art development, music, drama and outdoor education work for children and adults
  • community living support for adults
  • day support services for adults across Scotland
  • family advisory services
  • general information enquiry service
  • health information enquiry service
  • practice skills training and assessments for professionals
  • policy assessment, development, representation and consultation
  • residential short breaks for adults (Dundee and South Lanarkshire) and for children in Greater Glasgow
