Welcome to Forest Sensory Services
Previously known as Forge, a Charity for people with sight loss, we have now re-launched the Charity as Forest Sensory Services and our aim is to be the first local supplier of sensory support in the Forest of Dean.
We will achieve this by providing…..
- Emotional Support
- Inter Agency Working
- Information and Advice
- Assessments at Home & Work
- Sensory Loss Advocacy
- User Groups & Classes
- Equipment / Training
Many of the people we support are still coming to terms with the loss of their hearing and/or vision and we can help them by assessing their individual needs and signposting them to others who may be able to help.
We look forward to inviting you to events and updating this website with news of our progress. Details of our current services can be found on this website.
