  • “I have missed being with the people from the games group – we always have such a good laugh, I loved hearing their voices and feeling like I was with them again. It felt like life was back normal for a couple of hours”

    — “I am so thankful to you all, I was feeling very low and sinking lower but I now feel more connected

Situation

Now, more than ever, we need your help to offer vital support to people living with sight loss in our community, many of whom are vulnerable and isolated and have therefore been hard hit by the wide-reaching effects of the coronavirus lockdown.

Solution

We have adapted to the current situation and are offering vital support to people living with sight loss, their families and carers, through one to one calls, wellbeing support, access to food and prescription delivery services, ordering service for aids and equipment, support with magnifiers, connecting people to online communities through. We are continuously assessing the support needs of our service users to ensure that we are able to meet their support needs.
