We will encourage independence, providing many different opportunities for people to feel less
isolated and more confident. We can provide a home
visiting service and a range of low vision support modular courses, which we tailor
to meet individual needs.
There are many social groups to join and we can offer assistance

We have 3 full time members of staff and 6 part time
As an independent local
charity, we rely on donations, legacies and fund-raising
to cover the cost of providing the services we offer to our members.
Gift Aid donations are especially helpful because we are also
able to claim back income tax, thereby significantly increasing the
value of your gift.
We make no charge
