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

Coronavirus Update – May 2021

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

We are also still running a number of remote services, 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.

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