See & Hear Van

Updated June 2015

The See & Hear Van is a purpose-designed vehicle which visits all corners of Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin. It was delivered in November 2009.

On board, our volunteers provide advice and information about support, services and specialist equipment for anyone with a visual and/or hearing impairment.  Samples of some of the equipment are held on the van, including specialised magnifiers and software for use on computers.View inside the See and Hear Van

The van receives direct support and advice from the sensory impairment services of Shropshire Council.

The schedule of visits can be found by clicking on the link below.  Venues are added as the year progresses. It is therefore a good idea to check the schedule regularly for information about visits to your area.

The van is also used as a sight information centre at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital on the first Thursday and third Wednesday of the month. On these days, the van is parked opposite the main outpatients entrance to the hospital, opposite the bus stop.
