Home visiting service

Our home visiting service supports people to maintain their independence and to continue to live in their own home.

We do this by assisting with tasks including accessing information, reading correspondence and, where appropriate, helping the person respond, accompanying them on a walk, assisting with shopping, organising groceries and checking “use by” dates, helping with a hobby, or just having a cuppa and a chat.

All volunteers working with clients are trained in sighted guide technique and how best to support someone with vision impairment.  They are also vetted by the Disclosure and Barring Service - previously CRB.

Watch our new video which shows one of our volunteer's experiences of the Home Visiting Service, and the views and reactions of the wonderful client he visits.
