The Council currently has two separate contracts that provide support and advice to people with
a sensory impairment. The contract supporting people with sight impairment is run by the Isle of
Wight Society for the Blind whilst the other contract supporting people with a hearing impairment
is run by Action on Hearing Loss.
The intention is to bring together both of these services into one single contract and to provide
increased support to people who are deaf blind, children in transition who are not in education
and people with other related sensory impairments.
