Services for people with sight or hearing difficulties
See Hear is the national, strategic framework for sensory impairment in Scotland. It promotes a seamless multi-agency approach to assessment, care and support to people with a sensory impairment.
In 2016, both North Lanarkshire Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) and South Lanarkshire Health HSCP commissioned a small piece of independent research to help inform how to take forward the recommendations in See Hear. This was to support both HSCPs to better plan, with partners, how to take forward actions locally, based on what people with a sensory impairment in Lanarkshire had to say. You can read the Summary Report and you can view our BSL versions of the summary report on YouTube.
Alternatively, you can listen to an audio version on YouTube.
We also have copies of the summary report available on a DVD in an audio format and in BSL. Braille can be provided on request. Copies can be obtained by contacting the Planning Officer in Social Work Resources by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0303 123 1015.
British Sign Language (BSL) users can contact us using Scotland's online BSL interpreting video relay service (VRS).
Parents, carers and professionals supporting children with a visual impairment can find more information on the Visual Impairment Network for Children and Young People website.
