Sight Loss Support

See Clearly, Live Fully

At the Bureau, we understand the challenges that come with sight loss, and we are here to provide practical advice, support, and companionship to those who are experiencing it. Our vision is to empower individuals with sight loss to live life fully and independently, with the support of our caring community.

What We Offer

Through our Call Companions project and one-to-one support, we provide regular telephone calls to those who may feel isolated due to sight loss. Our friendly volunteers are trained to offer companionship and support, lending a listening ear and a friendly voice to brighten your day.

In addition, we offer home visits (when permitted and appropriate) to assist with gadgets, lighting, magnifiers, and home adaptations. Our team of experts can provide practical advice and solutions tailored to your needs, helping you regain independence and confidence in your daily activities.

You can also find information about our Visually Impaired Group (VIP) and the Talking Newspaper (Newsdisk)

I can't thank you enough for the support you have given me with my sight loss. The magnifiers you gave me have really helped, and I can now read my newspaper again! Also, the talking clock you provided me with means I now know what the time is! Thank you so much for helping me cope with my sight impairment.

Next Steps ....

We are here to help you see clearly and live fully, with compassion, care, and expertise.

Remember “It’s good to talk.”
