Being there when it matters

No one should have to face sight loss alone.

 Help is available if you have been diagnosed with sight loss

Across England there are established support services for patients known as sight loss advisers or Eye Clinic Liaison Officers (ECLOs). Sight loss advisers help patients and their families to understand their diagnosis, provide quality information and support, and can refer on to relevant services.
 
Unfortunately, short term and complex funding arrangements mean that many of these essential services are at risk. The removal of this vital service would deny patients access to support at their greatest time of need.
 
Thanks to everyone who has invited their MP to attend our event in Parliament on 26th November. We hope this event will help MPs understand the vital service provided by sight loss advisers up and down the country. 
 

Being there when it matters

Our new report is being released on 26th November with real stories, new research, and evidence of why all blind and partially sighted people need access to a sight loss adviser at the point of diagnosis.
