What we do

Our staff and volunteers are here for you to provide support and there are lots of ways to get involved!

We have a mixture of face to face and virtual services available to suit your particular needs.

Peer Support Groups

Our groups are a welcoming and friendly place to come to meet others with sight loss to have a chat and socialise. They are run by volunteers who have visual impairments themselves, who can help with anything from emotional support to practical tips to help you live independently. Our helpful sighted volunteers will make sure you have a cuppa and biscuit and have everything you need. We provide additional activities at our groups such as yoga, arts and crafts and games, etc, but these are optional.

Virtual Groups

These groups are accessed using Zoom on your smartphone, tablet, PC or laptop.
