Our Deaf Outreach service in Hampshire supports young adults, adults and elderly individuals with hearing impairments, autism spectrum conditions, mental health needs and/or learning difficulties. The outreach service offers individualised support packages in the Hordle area, in the person’s family home, own home and in the community across Portsmouth and Fareham. People are supported to live as independently as possible and can choose the level of support they require from 1 to 24 hours a day.
The support team are all BSL trained, with a large proportion of them being Deaf or Hard of Hearing themselves. Some team members are Profoundly Deaf, whilst others have Cochlear implants.
