North East Sensory Services
North East Sensory Services (NESS) is a charity, established in 1879, which supports blind and deaf people in the North-east. Its aim is to help its service users achieve greater independence.
NESS supports people of all ages, from babies to the elderly, helping clients and their families come to terms with their sensory loss, and find coping strategies.
Through statutory social work and rehabilitation services provided on behalf of local councils, as well as a series of added-value services, NESS offers life-changing support to visually impaired, blind, hearing impaired and deaf people from Perth to Aberdeen to Elgin.
NESS also provides a number of added-value services including a café, a gym, and a library providing audio books, large print books and magazines. Furthermore, a technology department provides support with IT issues for communicating with public services and chatting with grandchildren overseas.
