We receive lots of questions and requests for statistics (for example, how many deaf children are there in Scotland, how many hard of hearing people, what is the percentage of deaf and hard of hearing people with mental health problems and so on), information about different services (for example, sign language interpreters, notetaking, lipspeaking, loops, DLA, Access to Work, deaf awareness courses and so forth) and addresses of sensory impairment units. We have also had lots of questions about Personal Independence Payment which is replacing Disability Living Allowance for people between the ages of 16 and 64. We have added an extra section on Personal Independence Payment – PIP.
There are five separate sections:
- Audiology Services
- Sensory Impairment Units
- Q & A (questions and answers)
- Personal Independence Payment
