We support over 13,500 disabled children, young people and their families every year by delivering over 120 services throughout England.

Sibs exists to support people who grow up with or have grown up with a disabled brother or sister. It is the only UK charity representing the needs of over half a million young siblings and over one and a half million adult siblings.
Siblings have a lifelong need for information, they often experience social and emotional isolation, and have to cope with difficult situations. They also want to have positive relationships with their disabled brothers and sisters and to be able to choose the role they play in future care and support.
The Deaf and Hearing Impairment Team are a specialist service providing support across Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire. We work with people of all ages who are profoundly Deaf or have an acquired hearing loss.
People are offered an assessment of their hearing /communication difficulties and, if they meet eligibility criteria, can be provided with services to help them towards living as independently as possible in the community. This includes financial help towards the cost of assistive hearing devices through the Direct Payment Scheme.
We work with people of all ages with a visual impairment whose sight cannot be corrected by glasses or medical treatment. The majority of our referrals come from local and national hospitals for registration purposes, but anyone can refer to us if they are experiencing difficulties with their vision.
After an assessment, we can offer a rehabilitation plan tailored to meet a person’s needs. This may include:
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
We aim to provide specialist knowledge and support to ensure that people understand their eye condition, regain confidence and independence, and are aware of other services available to them.
