Our information, advice and signposting service for people who are losing their sight, are visually impaired or blind. We can help with all aspects of your condition:

  • treatments
  • direct you to the people, services and organisations there to help, both locally and nationally, including voluntary groups and support from social services
  • financial benefits, concessions and grants that you could be entitled to
  • everyday products that can help make life easier
  • suggest ways you can continue to enjoy your hobbies and leisure time
  • help you join and use our library service of over 40,000 titles in braille, Moon, giant print and audio
  • employment, training and education opportunities
  • housing options, whether staying in your own home or moving elsewhere
  • emotional support and counselling services
  • or simply to offer a listening ear.

Our specialist advice workers will spend time with you over the phone, making sure the support they give is right for you. We'll call you back a few weeks later to find out how you're getting on and what else we can do to help.
