Living with Sight Loss
We support with day-to-day living, welfare rights, housing issues and managing personal budgets. We offer tailored support in all aspects of life after sight loss, enabling you to make informed choices and to be in control of the way you live your life and maintain independence.
We run a community based course for people newly diagnosed with sight loss, helping to address the emotional impact of sight loss and increase confidence levels.
Our financial inclusion service offers advice about welfare rights, including personal budgets as part of self-directed support.
Our housing service offers help and support about issues in your home.
