Centre of Excellence – Deafblind (CoE – DB)

Our goal is to improve policy and practice in deafblindness by better understanding the needs of people with deafblindness through partnering with them and their support networks and researchers. We undertake relevant research which contributes to the current evidence base.

The Centre of Excellence – Deafblind team also supports other relevant research by supporting staff and clients of Able to participate where appropriate.
