£42,000 Grant for Deafblind UK

The isolation experienced by people who have sight and hearing loss can have a big impact on their mental health. Deafblind UK is using its Helpline to identify those who are in emotional distress, and offer access to an intensive six-week wellbeing and emotional support package.

The MCF’s £42,000 grant will help more people who are deafblind access the service and overcome the isolation, loneliness and anxiety that has been made worse by this pandemic.
