Intervenor Service

KAB's Intervenor Service provides one-to-one person centred support for people who are congenitally deafblind or visually impaired with additional physical disabilities, resulting in complex needs. The service can also benefit  people with a single sensory impairment who also has significant additional disabilities, again resulting in complex needs.

  • development of a specifically structured programme of activities to encourage social and personal development.
  • a professional sighted guiding service.
  • support with the use of low vision aids.
  • hearing aid support and maintenance
  • support to develop and maintain daily living skills and skills for independence.

Service Cost

The Intervenor Service is charged at an hourly rate. The service can be purchased privately or clients may be eligible for help with funding from thier local authority.

"We believe every deafblind person has the right to choice and independence. Intervenors can make that happen."
