We are delighted that our Equipment and Information Centre continues to be 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.

In line with Government Guidance Plan B, 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.
