We provide one-to-one support for people newly diagnosed with a sight impairment. We provide information, advice and guidance for clients according to their needs.
Our team of volunteers and support workers can advise you on living independently in your own home. We provide friendship, support and practical assistance around the house.
Our employment service provides advice to those looking to return to work. We equip people with the skills and confidence to successfully apply for jobs and to develop their career.
Our I.T. and Braille training provide skills to help you in accessing information and services, allowing you to read braille and access online resources as well as using email.
Our mobile and our local resource centres allow you to get advice as well as allowing you to try out specialised equipment and technologies for the home and when out-and-about.
