About

What is a visual impairment?

A visual impairment is when a person has sight loss that cannot be corrected using glasses or contact lenses.
The Visual & Hearing Impairment Team is part of the Therapy Service within Coventry City Council.

We are a team of Rehabilitation Workers who work with people who are:

  • Deaf, deafened or hard of hearing
  • Visually impaired
  • Dual sensory loss (both sight and hearing loss)

Our main role is to promote independent living.

The service covers the entire city. Any adult or young person going through the transitions process with a visual impairment, hearing loss or dual sensory loss who thinks they have care and support needs can refer themselves to the service or a family member can contact us on their behalf can access the service.

The team can also receive referrals from other professionals, such as GPs. We communicate with individuals during their assessment, review or completion of a support plan.
