Helping people with a visual impairment
How we can 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.
