Living with Sight Loss courses and phone groups

Gentleman chatting on the phone
Have you been diagnosed with sight loss? Would you like to share experiences with other people in similar situations? Are you interested in finding out about services available to you?

Our free, informal, community-based courses provide information, advice, support and practical solutions for people adjusting to sight loss. Our courses take place via face-to-face meetings or in phone groups, depending on your preference and our course availability.

We can help you adjust to your sight condition, increase independence and boost your confidence. You will also get the chance to talk to and share experiences with others in similar situations.

These courses are for adults of all ages. Friends, family members or anyone close to you can also join. 

What topics are covered in our free sessions?

  • Welfare rights
  • Getting out and about
  • Tips and gadgets for everyday living
  • Assistive technology – including tablets and phones
  • Eye health
  • Wellbeing
  • Leisure, hobbies and interests
  • And hear about a range of helpful organisations and services out there.

How long will the course take?

Our face-to-face courses are either two or four days, and may be consecutive (two days), or spread out over two or four weeks.

Our phone groups run for four short sessions, over four weeks.
