Welcome to Sensory Advocates NW

Hello!

Thank you for visiting our website.  We were formally known as Network Circle for Deafness (NCFD)

Welcome to our Website

We are Sensory Advocates NW! We are a non-profit charity, providing specialist sensory advocacy across a wide range of areas for eligible client including Deaf, Deaf-Blind and Blind people through independent and peer advocacy.   Our service is primarily provided at our base site; however, we are able to offer our services in the community, in hospitals, in residential homes or at the client’s own home.

We offer ad-hoc advocacy sessions across Greater Manchester (Bury, Oldham, Manchester etc) for residents who are unable to attend our offices in Bolton.  However, if you live outside of Greater Manchester and do not have access to specialist sensory advocates in your local area – get in touch! We may be able to help you or signpost you to another partner organisation.

This website contains information about our principals, how we conduct our services and how you can contact us!

Please get in touch if you feel that we can offer you support or if you would like any more information about our services.
