Our services are designed to fit the holistic needs of our users. Many people diagnosed with a visual impairment may not initially have the coping systems and emotional support needed to negotiate a new, unfamiliar world. Visual impairment can make even the simplest tasks monumentally difficult.
Therefore, we provide an integrated approach, with our two core services of the Sight Support Service and our Community Project supplemented by two additional services, Share London and Grants to fit the varying needs of Londoners living with a visual impairment.
Our free services can change lives for people who are blind or partially sighted in the twelve inner London boroughs in which we work. However, we need your support to continue and grow.
With your donations, we can continue to provide practical and emotional support to those in need. We appreciate every donation, all of which go towards helping Londoners in need.
