Here at Molly Watt Trust we believe in enabling those living with Usher Syndrome to live their lives as independently as possible.
Having access to mainstream assistive technology and the ability to make full use of all features.
Empowering Through Workshops, Assistive Technology, and Usher Community Connections
We are able to offer small workshops or one to one workshops to assist those with Usher Syndrome and those who work with or live with those living with the condition.
Various assistive technology including handheld devices lead to inclusion in places of education and in the workplace.
We also offer a “Meet and Greet”service, a welcome to the Usher community.
This can mean meeting with somebody living with Usher, family, friends or those working with people with Usher Syndrome.
