Wakefield District Sight Aid

Who we are

Wakefield District Sight Aid is a local charity providing support to people living with sight loss across the Wakefield District. We do this through a number of practical support services, including home visits where we can assess for and provide certain equipment designed to help people live more confidently and independently, and a programme of outreach activities, including regular social events, a befriending service, and day trips. 

Our telephone helpline is available 09.30 - 13.30 Monday to Thursday, for confidential support and advice for people with a visual impairment, their loved ones and carers, and sight care professionals. We run regular Equipment Demonstration and Advice Days where people can come together to experience a range of equipment to help with daily living and meet professionals from other charities, support services and specialist manufacturers.

Social isolation can be a huge issue for people living with low vision, and our services are very much designed to bring people together to share experiences and to empower people to live the life they want to lead.

We work closely with our colleagues in the Sensory Impairment Team at Wakefield Council and are grateful for the Council's support of our home visiting service.

With the help of our supporters, we want to carry on making a difference within the local community. We want to grow, so we can be there for more people and we can only do that with your help.

Thank you very much for your kind support of our work.
