More About The Provider

Service Description

Description of Service

In Good Hands is a BIG Lottery funded project to support local northeast organisations working with older people to extend their services to those older people living with dual sensory impairment (deafblindness). It offers FREE OCN training in bite-size one day/two-day sessions. It offers expert advice and support to providers and any organisation in contact with older people and their families. It offers resources including a simple to use tool to help providers identify their older people whose sight and hearing are both causing problems - very often this is unnoticed with damaging consequences. More details on our website.
We are working with Hartlepool Borough Council with the shared ambition of building the capacity of local organisations to make Hartlepool the best place in the country for older people with this condition. We will soon have an office in the new CIL in Hartlepool.
