In 2018 DSN were delighted to extend our operations into Wrexham.

Wrexham Borough Council have commissioned us to provide a comprehensive service to provide practical support, information and advice to residents of all ages who are Deaf, living with hearing loss, or who are DeafBlind (dual sensory loss).

In overall aim of the service is to promote independence and positive well-being, and to ensure that an individual’s hearing impairment does not result in isolation or vulnerability.

Yn 2018 roedd yn bleser gan DSN ymestyn ein gwaith i Wrecsam.

Mae Cyngor Bwrdeistref Wrecsam wedi ein comisiynu i ddarparu gwasanaeth cynhwysfawr i ddarparu cefnogaeth ymarferol, gwybodaeth a chyngor i drigolion o bob oedran sydd yn Fyddar, yn byw gyda nam ar y clyw, neu sydd yn Fyddar a Dall (nam ddeuol ar y synhwyrau). 

Nod cyffredinol y gwasanaeth yw hyrwyddo annibyniaeth a lles cadarnhaol, a sicrhau nad yw nam ar y clyw unigolion yn arwain at unigedd na bod yn agored i niwed.
