Our vision and mission

Our vision

Our vision is of a world in which all people with deafblindness can be equal and active members of society. 

People with deafblindness around the world are often excluded from education, healthcare and work. As a result, many lead short and isolated lives.   

With the right support, they can communicate, access quality education and healthcare, become independent and find a job. Rather than being excluded, they can thrive and live life to their full potential.   

Sense International is the only international non-governmental organisation dedicated to supporting people with deafblindness and their families around the world. 

Our mission

Our mission is to work in partnership with others across the globe – people with deafblindness, their families, carers and other professionals – to remove barriers in societies and systems, so that people with deafblindness are fully included and can fulfil their potential.
