Deafblind Service Planning
Having spent ten years working for a Local Authority in Deafblind Specialist Assessments (in line with Section 7), FACS is able to help Local Authorities meet the diverse needs of the Deafblind population, by advising on gaps in services and recommendations for provision of specialist services.
