Event description: Throughout the year, The See & Hear Van is taken to various locations throughout Shropshire. It has on board an array of information about services and specialist equipment, for anyone with a VISUAL and/or HEARING impairment. Advice and follow-up information and contacts are available from the staff who man it. They have installed up-to-date IT equipment on which visitors to the van can view demonstration DVDs and national charity catalogues of the most recent innovations in the sensory impairment field. This service is funded by SVAB, and is managed in partnership with other agencies. The volunteers who staff the van are specially trained for this work. The van also receives direct support and advice from the sensory impairment services of both Shropshire County Council and the Borough of Telford and Wrekin. Visitors to the van therefore get free advice and information to suit their individual needs.
