Sensory Locality Plan

Developed in partnership with NHS Ayrshire and Arran, East, North and South Ayrshire Councils, Action on Hearing Loss Scotland, RNIB Scotland and many other voluntary organisations, the Ayrshire and Arran Sensory Locality Plan applies to children, young people, adults and older people living with sensory loss.

Sensory loss includes varying degrees of hearing loss, sight loss and dual sensory loss. It also includes those with a recognised sensory loss, those at risk of developing a sensory loss and hidden or untreated sensory loss.

The Sensory Locality Plan is focused on three areas:

  • The services and support delivered across Ayrshire and Arran
  • Wider engagement from other public services
  • Parents, families, carers and the wider public

To improve the quality, reach, impact and outcomes for those with sensory loss across Ayrshire and Arran, the Plan and sets out the following priority areas of development and action for services between 2014 and 2024:

  • Learning and training
  • Accessibility
  • Decisive shift to prevention
  • Person centred outcomes
  • Clear and effective pathways
  • Integrated and localised
  • Flexible, adaptable and fit for the future
  • Improving practise and performance
