Residents and families of residents with physical disabilities and sensory loss are being asked to take part in this survey to help shape the future of services provided for them. By 'sensory loss' we mean people who are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing, people who are blind or partially sighted and people who are deaf blind.
People who are blind or visually impaired can do this survey over the phone if they prefer, thanks to an arrangement with Disability Powys.
The website is configured to allow people to view information in a larger font size or by using their preferred screen reader.
You can make your text and screen resolution larger or smaller by pressing down ‘control’ and the ‘+’ key a few times until you are happy with the size shown.
You can choose preferences for colours and text size, type and spacing using the Preferences button at the top of every page. Colour options include High Contrast and various low contrast choices.
A five year plan is being drawn up to focus on key priorities and services for residents in the county.
Cllr Stephen Hayes, Cabinet Member for Adults Services:
“A forum was established a few years ago by the council and Powys Teaching Health Board to allow us to get a better understanding of the issues facing residents with physical disabilities and sensory loss. It is co-chaired by two Powys residents who have experience of the challenges of living with these conditions.
"The forum has been instrumental in informing and shaping our thinking and understanding around the services people access or need to access. We would though welcome any additional comments and insights that people have to make.”
