Blind and partially sighted have difficulty in obtaining the correct brand of goods and selecting the best price. They also have difficuly finding their way around a supermarket and the various obstacles encountered.


Our volunteer will assist the person with their shopping, finding the brand of goods they require and reading labels and prices, also being able to point out the two for one offers, etc. The volunteer will also look after the persons safety and help them to avoid obstacles that may be in their path.
