Empowering people with disabilities for over 25 years

How your donation can help

Living Options Devon provideds support, advice and infromation as well as services for people with disabilities, Deaf people and their families. Your donation is vital in ensuring that we can continue to provide this support.

Here are just some of the ways your kind donations are used:

Equipment

See Hear Centre staff and volunteers show people with sensory loss how to use specialist equipment such as talking phones, colour detectors and hearing loops. Through the See Hear Centre, individuals with sensory loss can borrow and test out equipment before making often costly purchases.

£14 could pay for tinnitus pillow speakers or £35 would pay for a talking watch.

Information and Advice

The first point of contact for many people with disabilities and Deaf people, our staff and volunteers provide information relating to disability and local services.

£20 could help us to stay in touch with a disabled person, so we can provide information and help them access the services they want.

Children's Group

The Group provides peer support, information and fun activities for Children of Deaf Adults, enabling them to take part in activities they would otherwise not be able to do. Activities have included: taking part in Rock Solid, ceramic painting, visiting the House of Marbles and much more!

£40 could pay for a child's place at the Children of Deaf Adults (CODA) club, enabling them to take part in an activity with other CODAs.

Countryside Mobility

Our Countryside Mobility Project enables people with limited mobility to better access the countryside by providing all-terrain mobility scooters at countryside sites across the South West for hire.

£110 could pay for the maintenance/servicing of a Tramper, enabling it to continue being available for people with limited mobility to hire and explore the countryside.
