Sight Cymru (formerly Sight Support) is an independent Welsh charity, established in 1865. Our registered Head Office is in Pontypool, Torfaen.

We pride ourselves on being the only entirely Welsh sight loss agency that provides services throughout Wales. Our main aims are to: help people who have lost or are losing their sight, prevent unnecessary sight loss, help local authorities and local health boards to provide good rehabilitation services, train professionals, carers, service users, friends and family and to develop the eye-care sector throughout Wales.

Our team of 25 staff and, very importantly, over 100 volunteers, all of whom are dedicated and well trained to help blind and partially sighted people, provide our support services. The services we provide include: rehabilitation & mobility (helping someone get on with their lives by adjusting how they do things after losing their sight) counselling information, advice and advocacy, welfare rights assistance, clubs and activities, aids, equipment and resources, specially designed for independence training, Technology Assistance with our A.C.E project and Befriending and Telephone Support.

If you know someone who is struggling with everyday tasks such as seeing a clock face, or identifying a loved one by sight please encourage them to get in touch. If we can help them we will, but we can also help them get in touch with services available in their neighbourhood.
