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. If you would like to find out more, or to talk about any aspect of sight loss, please telephone 01904 636269 or email

Service Update – June 2021

As well as offering support, advice and information by telephone and email, we can now offer one-to-one appointments to explore equipment at our Merchantgate office. Please telephone to book an appointment with our Sight Loss Advisor.

We are still running a number of activities remotely, including our Home Connections equipment scheme, Keeping in Touch befriending project 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.
