Who we are
Suffolk Sight provides welfare to the visually impaired community, children and adults of all ages, in the county of Suffolk. We offer help and services to all those suffering from any form of sight condition, whether or not they are formally registered blind or partially sighted.
Known as East Suffolk Association for the Blind (ESAB) and West Suffolk Sight until March 2020 our teams continue to work closely with each individual for as long as is needed, offering ideas and solutions to help with confidence and independence and based on specific sight loss needs.
Our community workers have great awareness and knowledge of the opportunities and choices available to those with a visual impairment. In addition to home visits offering general support and guidance, our community workers can suggest aids and adaptations for independent and safe living, help with applications for benefits, concession and grants, and make referrals for low vision assessments.
At Suffolk Sight we have a knowledgeable team of technology advisors who can provide support, advice and training on a variety of technologies, both specialist and mainstream.
Community is important to us and we run regional social groups and clubs that meet regularly at several venues acoss the county and we also have a wonderful team of volunteer befrienders.
There are no direct charges for the services provided by our organisation.
Suffolk Sight is a charitable incorporated organisation (Registration number 1183608) was created in April 2020 by the amalgamation of East Suffolk Association for the Blind (ESAB) with West Suffolk Sight.
