Welcome to the Wilberforce Trust: supporting people with visual & hearing impairments since 1833.

Our COVID-19 Response

At this time we have taken the decision to close our offices and our teams have moved to home working in order that they can best support the continued delivery of our supported living & Yorsensory services.

We want to reassure our customers and stakeholders that we are doing everything we can to keep the people we provide housing, care and support for as safe as possible during this time.

If you have an urgent enquiry please contact us on 01904 760037 or [email protected] so we may direct you to the relevant department.

Our YorSensory Team are available on:

       Phone: 01904 20 22 92

       Text:     07580 750 346

       Email:   [email protected]

If you are feeling vulnerable or need support to cope in your own home, then please contact the YorSensory team who can help put you in touch with the correct people.  RNIB’s national Helpline is also still available to answer queries about any aspect of living with sight loss on 0303 123 9999.
