Let us know your views so we can help those with sight or hearing loss

Bury Council has launched a survey to understand:

  • What help and support adults living in Bury who have sight loss, hearing loss or loss of both senses, use to help remain independent with day-to-day living. This could be a group, activity, service, technology and equipment.
  • What could help but is not available.

The survey is part of some wider work to help shape the first ever Bury Adult Social Care Sensory Impairment Strategy.

The council is working with Bury Blind Society and Bury Hearing Hub to get the views of local people on what works well and how this can be built on and how we can improve and adapt our ways of working to help people remain independent with day-to-day living.

Anyone who experience of using adult social care in Bury or none at all is welcome to fill in the survey including family members and friends are welcome to complete the survey.

Professionals, and other interested parties can also take part.

The survey can be filled in using or by printing it off and returning it to Bury Blind Society or the Bury Hearing Hub.

We are looking for the views of anyone whether they lots of experience of adult social care, or none at all. The aim of this work is to improve the wellbeing and quality of life for adults with a visual, or hearing impairment or dual sensory loss. It is important that we understand the views of people and their families, so we can develop new ways of working, maximise the impact of what we do and think creatively about how we can work together in Bury.
