Welcome to the website of the Centre of Excellence for Sensory Impairment (COESI)

 Supporting Independence

COESI is a new charity which develops and provides integrated services for people with sensory impairments where there are gaps in provision.

Its aim is to enable and support people of all ages with a hearing, visual or dual sensory impairment, and their families and carers, providing a central source of information.

The Charity is developing new activities and integrated services, networking with local and national organisations in the voluntary, third and statutory sectors around the UK.

We have a telephone number in Croydon, London at our Registered Office - 020 8686 0049 and also a local helpline at our Teesside Office - 01287 204204. We can help to signpost to organisations and services in your local area.
