Deafblind charity meeting

I had a very fruitful and interesting meeting with members of the Deafblind charity in Neath discussing the issues that affect those with hearing and visual impairments in our community. Some of the issues covered included the community accommodating deafblind people, public loop systems, benefits help for deafblind people now the system has changed, Blue badges and public toilets. The work that Deafblind do to support people who have a combined sight and hearing loss is fantastic and their continuing fight so that deafblind people have the same rights, access and opportunities as others is vitally important to allow them to live independent lives.
