MySight York is a thriving independent charity supporting local people to live well with sight loss.

Our aim is to help people living with sight loss to make confident choices about their lives. Our experienced staff and friendly volunteers are always happy to help.

You will find information about us and our services on this site. To find out more, or to talk with us about any aspect of sight loss, please telephone 01904 636269 or email

Service Update – July 2021

We are delighted that our Equipment and Information Centre is now open for one-to-one appointments. Please call to arrange an appointment. If you prefer to contact us by telephone or email, we will be happy to help with any aspect of living with sight loss.

We are still running a number of activities remotely, including our Home Connections equipment delivery service, Keeping in Touch befriending scheme and many of our Activity groups. Our Talking Space counselling service is also operating on a reduced basis.

If you, or someone you know, need support with any aspect of living with sight loss, please get in touch.
