Vision Support Centres

Support centres

Our Vision Support Centres were established to meet your need for local access to equipment and information in your community.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served and a minimum donation of £1 towards the centre operating costs is requested at our welcome desk on arrival.

Our staff, volunteers and attendees can’t wait to welcome you!

If buses are not suitable or if you struggle to meet the cost of taxis and so transport is a barrier to you being able to attend, please let us know. We can refer you into community transport organisations and have a small amount of funding that may be used to assist you. Contact us via: [email protected] and mark your email “FAO Rebecca” or call 01926 411331 and leave a message for Rebecca.

Each Vision Support Centre provides the following:


Advice, support and information


Information about our charity’s services


Demonstrations of daily living aids to promote independence and safety


An opportunity to meet other people with sight loss


Regular presentations of services in your area as well as displays of products for people with visual impairment


Magnifier Sessions to help you identify the most appropriate magnifier for your condition – by appointment


IT Training – assistance with setting up and using your existing phone or tablet in the best way to suit you. If you are thinking of purchasing a device, we have a selection of phones and tablets to try – by appointment

Weekly support centres

The weekly centres are now fully open, appointments are no longer necessary except for IT and Magnifiers. Everyone is welcome – you do not need to be registered as visually impaired to join us. If you, or a friend or relative have a sight condition and you wish to obtain information or advice, please do come along!
