Our Home Visiting Service operates in 9 London Boroughs, Barnet, Brent, Ealing, Enfield, Harrow, Haringey, Hillingdon, Hounslow and Richmond. We provide a unique service for people who are blind and partially sighted to assist, support, and enable them to continue to live independently in their own homes, complementing the work carried out by the Rehabilitation Officers and other professionals.
Often our clients live alone or feel isolated and would simply like befriending, whilst others require more practical assistance. Our staff and trained volunteers (who are required to undertake a DBS check) provide support in the form of help with daily living such as assistance with reading their post, visiting friends, writing letters, outings and shopping. Such tasks can become quite difficult for someone who is blind or partially sighted without a ‘good’ pair of eyes to help.
We support adults aged 18+ with sight loss.
Regular (weekly or fortnightly) visits to people's homes, 1-2 hours weekl
