Helping people with a visual impairment
HOW CAN WE HELP?
The Partially Sighted Society is a registered charity that was formed in 1971 to provide high quality information, advice, support, training, equipment and clear print material for the benefit of people with a visual impairment to help them make the best possible use of their sight.
Please give us a call if you, or someone you know has a vision problem and would like some help and advice. You do not need to be registered as visually impaired to access our service.
IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK LIKE CHRISTMAS!
Take a look on our catalogue page for our full range but below are just a few ideas of Christmas Gifts for your visually impaired loved one!
BE SEEN WHILST OUT AND ABOUT! We have added to our Symbol Products - a backpack, shopping bag, wristband and mug. During the dark nights make sure you are seen when out and about by wearing one of our bags, lanyards or armbands - stay safe but keep independent! See our catalogue page for the full range.
