How We Can Help

How we can help

Warwickshire Vision Support is proud to have supported visually impaired people across the whole of the county for over a century.  We offer a range of services and activities to support people with visual impairment with the vital help of our dedicated volunteers:

  • Qualified Eye Clinic Liaison Officers (ECLOs), based at Eye Clinics in three Warwickshire hospitals. This provides a first point of contact and immediate support for those newly diagnosed with an eye condition causing sight loss.
  • A Vision Rehabilitation Programme, helping keep people safe, confident and independent in their homes and in the community, using magnifiers, mobility aids and assistive technology.
  • 11 weekly and monthly ‘Vision Support Centres’.  These are run in accessible community venues and  provide access to peer support, low vision aids, advice and information. We have weekly support centres in Leamington Spa, Nuneaton, Rugby and Stratford upon Avon, and monthly centres in Alcester, Atherstone, Bedworth, Coleshill, Kenilworth, Shipston-on-Stour and Southam. We can help with door-to-door transport for those on low incomes.
  • 9 Social Clubs providing activities and entertainment, as well as an opportunity to make friends and benefit from the peer support of other people experiencing and managing sight loss. Some clubs are able to offer subsidised transport for members.
  • Befriending services for vulnerable and isolated people we know, keeping them safe with weekly welfare checks in a friendly call from one of our brilliant volunteers.
  • Interactive Technology Training using the latest accessibility features on phones, computers and laptops, for shopping, finances, appointments and for social contact.  We provide 1:1 training and demonstrate a range of smart devices designed for people with sight loss, offering an opportunity to try before you buy.

If you are interested in any of these services please contact us on 01926 411311 or you can email us at [email protected] and we can provide you with further information.


Hospital Eye Clinic Advice Service (ECLO)

The Hospital Eye Clinic Advice Service (ECLO) is available at eye clinics in Nuneaton, Warwick and Stratford Hospitals.


Interactive Technology Service/Articles/Support

The IT training service is now available at the weekly vision support centres via an appointment. Digital technology can be inclusive and empowering.


Telephone Befriending Service

As a direct result of the feedback we received from our visually impaired service users, we launched a telephone befriending service.


Home Visitor Service

For many people living with sight loss, the greatest challenges are isolation and the problems of not being able to access information.


Vision Support Centres

Our Vision Support Centres are designed to meet your need for local access to equipment and information.


Rehabilitation Services

We are contracted by Warwickshire County Council to provide Rehabilitation Services to visually impaired people living in Warwickshire.
