Sensory Teaching Advisory and Resource Service (STARS)

There was recently a re-structure of the Hearing Impaired and Visually Impaired Services, and we have now combined to become one team. The Service will continue to be a joint arrangement between four local authorities with Middlesbrough as lead. Our area includes Stockton, Hartlepool and Redcar and Cleveland.

We are now known as Sensory Teaching Advisory and Resources Service (STARS).

The team will continue to deliver support to children aged 0-25 with a sensory impairment, ...and we have some exciting developments planned to further improve the service we offer.

Jill Patterson and Kirsty Sanger are currently sharing the role of Head of Service, with support from team leads Ruth Crosby-Stewart (HI) and Jeannie Casson (VI).

We have a new central email address:

Our telephone number remains the same: 01642 354354

We look forward to continuing our work with you all.
