Sensory Advocacy Services

Advocacy means having someone to support you and to help make sure your choices, views and rights are respected. Deaf Links offer a free, confidential advocacy service available to anyone who is Deaf, hard of hearing, deafened, deafblind or visually impaired. We will not make decisions for you, but help you to take control of the important decisions in your life.
