If you have a hearing impairment which impacts on your day-to-day life, there is help available from our Sensory Service.

We support and promote the independence and wellbeing of adults who have a hearing impairment that impacts on their day-to-day activities.

Based on your individual situation, our service may be able to provide information, training, referrals and some equipment such as:
  • specialist equipment to alert you to doorbell, telephone and smoke alarms
  • referral to Audiology for support, advice and equipment
  • referral to POhWER advocacy services for support and advice
  • referral to Luton Rights/ Citizen’s Advice Bureau for support, information and advice
  • referral to the fire service for smoke detectors
