This includes financial help towards the cost of assistive hearing devices through the Direct Payment Scheme.

Instruction on how to complete daily living tasks such as cooking, making drinks, using the telephone, and writing
Mobility training to complete local routes independently
Appropriate specialist equipment
Sign posting to local and national VI services
