This service is a joint project working in partnership with Sight Service and has been funded for five years through the Big Lottery.
We have two Vision Support Workers : Judith Brown and Jacqui Smith. They are a part of a team providing high quality services, training and support to visually impaired people.
They enable sight impaired individuals to do for themselves those basic day to day tasks that they would otherwise have to ask another person to do for them. Working for a set period of time (1 to 6 weeks) they will equip visually impaired people with information about the services, equipment, opportunities and training which is available locally and nationally and support the individual to greater independence, increased dignity and improved health and wellbeing.
The outcomes are:
Jacqui and Judith work Tuesday to Friday inclusive 10-00 am to 4.00 pm
