Support for Sensory Loss

The West Lothian Sensory Support Service is based in Arrochar House in Livingston and provides advice, information, support and equipment for people who are deaf, deafened, hard of hearing, are experiencing sight loss (either partially sighted or blind) or who are deafblind (experiencing dual sensory loss).

The service is delivered by social work staff from both West Lothian Council and Deaf Action. The Deaf Action worker is a BSL (British Sign Language) user. The service can visit people in their own homes and assist with obtaining support based on an assessment of need. The service can also refer to specialist services for assessment and provision of equipment or mobility training.

There is a drop-in facility for BSL (British Sign Language) user every Tuesday from 1.30pm to 4.00pm at the Sensory Support Centre.
