Coronavirus Update – April 2021

As the country starts to emerge from lockdown, we are working hard on plans for safe reopening. At present we are still available to offer support, advice and information by telephone or email.

Many of our services are still running remotely, including our Home Connections equipment scheme, Keeping in Touch project and Activity groups. Our Talking Space counselling service is also operating on a reduced basis and is able to take referrals. If you need a face to face appointment with one of our Sight Support advisors, we can discuss this with you and make plans to see you as soon as possible.

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

Members were able to voice their concerns over the safety of e-scooters, and it was reassuring to hear about the existing safety measures as well as improvements currently under discussion. In particular, we were pleased to note that the parking bay opposite our Merchantgate offices is to be removed – certainly a positive step as we start to reopen to visitors.
