We can help with information on:

  • The implications of registering as sight impaired or severely sight impaired
  • Eye conditions
  • How to maintain independence
  • Aids and equipment
  • Large print or talking books and newspapers
  • BT free directory service
  • Blue Badge Scheme for car parking concessions
  • Information Programmes
  • Social groups and activities
  • Befriending Services

                                                                                                                                                                  We can provide information on or signpost to our Home Support and Rehabilitation Services, as well as Social Services and other statutory agencies.
