Coronavirus Update – January 2021

During the current national lockdown, we are still available to offer support, advice and information by telephone or email. Many of our services, including our Home Connections equipment service, Keeping in Touch telephone project and Activity groups, are still running remotely. Our Talking Space counselling service is also operating on a reduced basis via telephone 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 we are able.

If you, or someone you know, need support with any aspect of living with sight loss, please get in touch. We will do our best to help in whatever way we can.
