Learn how we help
Warwickshire Vision Support, formerly known as Warwickshire Association for the Blind, has been supporting visually impaired people for over a century. Today the charity and its 250 plus volunteers run 7 social clubs offering activities and social support; host 11 vision support centres and 4 eye clinic advice desks providing information, advice and guidance to people coming to terms with sight loss; operate a telephone befriending service helping to address issues of social isolation; as well as delivering IT training to enable people to maintain their independence and exercise their rights.
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.
We are contracted by Warwickshire County Council to provide Rehabilitation Services to visually impaired people living in Warwickshire.
