Have your say on sensory service

Island residents who have a sight, hearing or other sensory impairment are being asked to help shape support services on the Isle of Wight.

The council and the Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group are currently reviewing the way in which sensory services are provided and want to make sure they are high quality and help people to maintain and improve their independence.

The online survey, which is also available in a hard copy, has been launched today (Friday 10 August) and seeks views from Islanders who use the current sensory service.

To complete the survey, please follow this link:

The survey ends at 5pm on Friday 14 September.

On 10 September there will also be a public drop in event at the Riverside Centre, the Quay, Newport from 10am to 2pm, where people can discuss their views or receive help to complete the survey. Communication support will be provided for deaf sign language users at this event.

“We are currently reviewing the services that support people with a sensory impairment. We would really value people sharing their experience, knowledge and views with us as this will help us to shape future services,” said Kathie Glover, adult social care commissioning officer.

“We are looking forward to hearing people’s views and hope that people will take the time to complete the survey or come along to our drop in event on 10 September.”

People with a current sensory loss registration will be sent a survey in the post. The survey can be returned by post, or alternatively it can be completed online at https://surveymonkey.co.uk/r/5WZ5LVY  

People Matter IW will be able to support people who wish to complete the survey over the phone on (01983) 241494.

Hard copies are also available on request from People Matter IW.
