Dual Sensory Impairment (DSI)
Learning you can trust from Hi-Vis UK – the DSI specialists
With the DSI Project from Hi-Vis UK...
You can learn all about DSI, and, together we can change the face of DSI support in the UK.
Being DSI / Deafblind / Sensory Impaired (SI) aware is essential in today’s social and health care services for staff, volunteers and people with sensory needs - especially older people with acquired DSI / SI - a growing part of society. Learn the Hi-Vis UK way - join our expanding local and national community and stay up to speed.
Every person is unique. How their sensory needs affect their wellbeing can only truly be understood on a one-to-on basis – you and the person with DSI / SI. Being and feeling prepared can be learning from scratch, refreshing knowledge, or learning something new – do all of these on our platform and always feel prepared.
Learn what you need to know and be confident you can: accurately identify, efficiently assess, and effectively support people with DSI / SI. And be confident that you are doing it right - compliant with standards and duties - including the Care Act (2014), Equalities and Diversity, Government Guidance.
Who doesn’t want to find ways to be better at what they do and how to support others with confidence and sensitivity?
But always being on top of your game takes time, energy, and commitment – the “Hi-Vis UK learning way” tackles this head-on by giving you control over where, when, and how often you spend learning.
Whether this is non-accredited or awareness level learning, CPD awarded, or full accredited qualification learning, do it with Hi-Vis UK.

Hi-Vis UK & SCIE reaching out to providers
Hi-Vis UK and the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) are longstanding partners working together to ensure health and social care providers and their people meet their statutory and service needs with regard to DSI service users. We do this by ensuring everyone in health and social care gets to know about this specialist training and by making it easier to subscribe to the courses on offer.
To change the face of DSI/SI support for people living with DSI/SI we need to understand how to: identify, assess, and work with them to meet their needs – now, and when their circumstances or needs change.
