We have launched a crowdfunding campaign to support Open Sight Family Service that cost more than £25,000 per year.
Open Sight doesn’t receive any statutory funding for the service and relies on private donation and fundraising efforts only.
Visit the campaign website to find out more.
We need to raise 15,000 pounds more for this cause and would be grateful for any contributions to make this happen, no matter how small.
Can you imagine waking up every day and not being able to see this fascinating world we live in and all that this encompasses, something we are all inclined to take for granted?
Our Family Support Officer can offer support to the whole family regardless of which member has sight loss.
We recognise that you can feel very isolated when you are supporting a family member with their sight loss. You may recognise that there is help and support for them but you are left feeling at a loss in some way.
Our Family Support Officer can offer advice, information and guidance on a variety of family matters.
We can advise about the correct benefits that you and your family are entitled to and support you to apply for Attendance Allowance and Personal Independent Payment. We can help you apply for a grant to help to cover the cost of equipment or to have a holiday.
