Hi-VisUK was established in 2016 as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation: Hearing Impairment and Visual Impairment Support UK, by the directors of its predecessor SCENE Enterprises CIC.

Hi-VisUK was created from the findings of SCENEs pioneering In Good Hands project. SCENE received £1.3 million of BIG Lottery Silver Dreams Funding to support the innovative work of In Good Hands about dual sensory impairment and acquired communication disorders.

Our new flagship project; Making Waves is supported by the National Lottery Community Fund. Hi-VisUK also delivers training and qualifications across the UK directly and with long term partners SCIE.
