Equipment and Information
Our Sight Loss Advisors, Deb and Jade, can offer specialist advice and support to help you manage the day to day challenges of living with sight loss.
We run a range of regular groups which give people the chance to share ideas, learn new skills and make friends. New members are always welcome.
Our Sight Support Service at York Hospital Eye Clinic is there to ensure that high quality emotional support is available when you need it most.
The Home Visiting Service provides free, one-to-one support and friendship to people living with sight loss. Our volunteers can visit in your own home or garden or support you to get out and about. The service has obtained Approved Provider Standard, the national quality standard for mentoring and befriending projects.
Changes in your eyesight can sometimes be difficult to manage. Counselling is an opportunity to talk openly about how you feel in a confidential and supportive environment.
There is a wealth of accessible technology available to help you maintain your independence and live life as you want to. We can help you find out more about how technology can work for you.
