£10 could fund a Liquid Level Indicator:

Liquid Level Indicators are a simple, but crucial device that helps our clients to pour a hot drink without scalding themselves. It sits on the side of a cup and bleeps/vibrates when the water reaches a certain level. This type of equipment contributes to a visually impaired person’s independence.

£50 could fund a session of Computer Training for one of our clients:

Our clients have to adapt to their sight loss and IT solutions are now a great help, enabling users to access far more information than they could in the past. But because each person’s eye condition is different they need to select and learn the software that is right for them. Our IT service is dedicated to providing guidance and training, which is usually on a one-to-one basis. 'Read More'

£1,000 could fund our Children's Christmas Parties:

We provide a Christmas party and gift for our younger clients. The parties are split in to 2 age groups The “Little Sparklers" pre-school group and the 5-16’s group. Children with a visual impairment struggle to fully participate at play centres with full sighted children, as it is often not safe for them to take part when it is busy, so we hire out the whole centre at a reduced rate for our children and their siblings.
