Sensory Impairment Service Provision in York - Future Options

Purpose of Report: City of York Council (CYC) needs to make a decision regarding the future direction shape and scope of its sensory provision. Moving forwards there are various options for the design and delivery of services for people with sensory impairments. The strengths and disadvantages of each are considered in detail in the report, along with recommended option.
