East Sussex Vision Support
Who we are
The East Sussex Association of Blind and Partially Sighted People (ESAB) works with over 1,700 local people who are blind or partially sighted. We offer clients information, training and support. We want our clients to have the same opportunities as sighted people, to be more confident and knowledgeable and have increased choice and control in their lives.
We also deliver vision awareness training for carers, local businesses and community groups. This helps the wider community understand how they can help people with a visual impairment to overcome some of the problems they face.
There are many different causes of blindness and people experience their sight loss in different ways. This is why ESAB focuses on individuals and develops a Seeing the Future plan with each client to identify their aims and how we can support them to achieve these.
Many of ESAB’s clients are over the age of 65 but we are working with increasing numbers of younger people.
