Coronavirus Update

In light of the current national situation, we have taken the decision to CLOSE MySight York’s offices as of 17th March 2020. Our Equipment & Information Centre will be closed until further notice, and we will not be running any activities, meetings or training until advised that it is safe to do so. We are very sorry to make this decision but feel it is essential in order to protect our visitors and staff from infection.

However, our staff are still working from home and are available for help and support or just a friendly chat on our usual number 01904 636269 or email us at

If you are feeling vulnerable or you are struggling to cope in your own home, please contact City of York Council’s Adult Social Services on 01904 555111.

For queries around any aspect of living with sight loss, you can also contact RNIB’s national Helpline: telephone 0303 123 9999.

Thank you for your understanding.
