Funded by the Big Lottery, the aim of the North East Derbyshire Project is to enable people with sight loss to maintain their independence and lead more healthy and fulfilling lives within their communities.
It covers the area from South Normanton to Creswell, including Chesterfield, Bolsover, Dronfield and Clay Cross.
As well as providing new groups and activities for visually impaired people, we are also raising awareness of eye health and providing home support.
You can visit us or contact us at our resource centre at St Margaret's Drive, Chesterfield, where we provide a friendly welcome and assistance with aids and equipment.
Social groups meet regularly at Bolsover, Clay Cross, Chesterfield, Dronfield, Shirebrook and South Normanton. There is also a bowling group based in Alfreton and an audio book club which meets at Bolsover Library. For information about when and where our groups meet, click here.
