Sight Advice South Lakes

1st April 2014

Awarded £648 from Castle Green Grassroots Grants.

Sight Advice South Lakes supports people of all ages with visual impairment to improve the quality of their lives and to maintain their independence. It promotes greater awareness of sight issues to the wider public.

They achieve this through their rural outreach service; seven support groups; assistive technology support, a user forum, the very popular activity and social groups and the award winning magazine ‘INSIGHT’ with all the news and information for visually impaired people and organisations. They run information and advice desks NHS Low Vision Clinics in Kendal and Windermere and a sight advice information desk at Westmorland General Hospital. Support is given to those who have been newly registered as blind or partially sighted, visually impaired children and their families, and those newly registered with dual sensory loss.
