Since 2017, the City of York Council has commissioned the Wilberforce Trust to deliver services for anyone living within the city of York who may have any degree of visual or hearing impairment or both. These services, delivered by our YorSensory Team, include information and signposting, equipment demonstration, rehabilitation, support groups, and outreach. If you or someone you know is struggling with any type of sight loss, hearing loss or both then we are here to help.

Evidence suggests that people wait on average 10 years before seeking help for their hearing loss and that when they do, GPs fail to refer 30-45% to NHS audiology services.
