Charity number


Our charity is an independent, local charity that exists to support blind or visually impaired people and their families in Harrogate and the surrounding district. We seek to enable visually impaired people to live independently and provide opportunities to meet and interact with other visually impaired people. We offer a variety of services; Information Technology training; provide advice on the help that is available; information on what being visually impaired means; opportunities to socialise, keep fit and develop, or re-awaken craft skills. In addition to activities in the Vision Support Centre, our charity undertakes home visits and runs a telephone befriending service to help tackle social and rural isolation. We have regular contact with over 700 members, as well as supporting eye clinic patients and anyone else who needs advise or support whilst they are experiencing some form of sight loss.
