Supporting transformational change to enable people with lived experience of Deafness, Deafblindness or Visual Impairment to live well.

What does the Scottish Sensory Hub do?

The Scottish Sensory Hub provides a platform for the voice of lived experience for anyone in Scotland with lived experience of Deafness, Deafblindness or Visual Impairment. It was launched in 2021 and draws experience from deafscotland (formerly the Scottish Council on Deafness) and SCOVI (Scottish Council on Visual Impairment).  

Lived experience is at the heart of everything the Scottish Sensory Hub does. The Sensory Hub acts as a bridge between the Scottish Government, public bodies, the third sector, and individuals, and enshrines a human rights-based approach for all. The Scottish Sensory Hub was founded to provide a strategic forum for cross-sensory input into policy and practice. It focuses on three key areas to promote living a good life – communication, information, and mobility. 

The Scottish Sensory Hub looks to support partnerships which uphold the strategic aims of the Scottish Government’s See Hear strategy and engage with organisations and individuals across the sensory landscape. 

We are happy to offer organisations support with inclusive communication, accessibility, and connected areas of policy and practice. To discuss further, please email the team at
