Together, we can make all the difference

As an independent charity, we rely on the goodwill of local businesses, individuals and our wonderful team of volunteers to help us realise our vision of supporting people with visual impairments live life to the full.

We do this by raising awareness for the blind and visually impaired and, via our passionate and experienced community support team, who are on hand with home visits, emotional support and guidance at a hugely challenging time.
