Sheffield Visually Impaired Walking Group

The group organises volunteer led walks for visually impaired people (VIPs) in and around Sheffield. This user led group offers VIPs the opportunity to go walking regularly, assisted by trained volunteer guides. They are one of the sports and leisure groups that are supported by SRSB.

SVIWG meets on the 1st Tuesday, 2nd Wednesday and 4th Sunday of every month. It also meets once per month on a Thursday. Tuesday walks are shorter and easier. Thursday walks are challenging. For further information contact Chair Christine Hewitt on 0114 236 6685.
