Support 4 Sight helps support people with visual impairment (VI) along with their families in Mid & West Essex, in addition we also offer an Employment Support service throughout all of Essex to either help VI people to seek employment or to retain their existing jobs. We operate from our resource centres in Chelmsford (Monday & Wednesday only) where we offer advice and information along with having an extensive range of equipment to help independent living which we offer holistically. We can offer digital training, befriending services and home visits when needed.
We also have regular desks manned by ECLO’s, employees & volunteers in the sight clinics in Broomfield, Braintree, Saffron Walden, Epping , Princess Alexandra, Bishops Stortford & Addenbrookes hospitals.
We organise coffee mornings, lunches and social outings for our VI community, we provide befriending for VI people who are socially isolated or lonely. We carry out home visits to give advice & information & to assess safety in the home. We can train on digital skills for VI as well as carrying out visual awareness training.
