We are all social beings and that doesn’t stop if you have a sight impairment. For many, maintaining contact with friends and family is essential to their health and well-being. For that reason, an important part of our role is to ensure our clients have access to support groups and befrienders.
Alternatively, as a large proportion of our clients are elderly, many of whom can become isolated because of their sight loss or mobility issues, we have put in place an extensive befrienders’ scheme. Our befrienders are available for a visit, a chat over a cup of coffee or a trip out.
Please note we can only offer these services to people who have been NHS registered as sight impaired or severely sight impaired.
