HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?
Sight Support Worthing formerly known as Worthing Society for the Blind is a registered charity that was first established in 1910 and is believed to be the oldest surviving independent charity in Worthing.
The objects of the charity are to promote the relief, general welfare, entertainment and provision of services, for persons who have sight impairment and are living within the boundaries of the Borough of Worthing. Membership of our charity is not restricted to those who have been registered as sight impaired or severely sight impaired. We will welcome all those who have a register-able eye condition which cannot be successfully treated or corrected and will be glad to provide advice and support to anyone who is concerned about their vision.
So much of what we do relies on our volunteers. Consequently they are extremely important to us and we want them to enjoy the time they so generously give to the charity. If you are over 25 with a minimum of 3 years’ driving experience, you may be able to drive our minibus that collects members for our activities and groups.
These are the regular activities that continue throughout the year, but it doesn’t end there. We also arrange theatre trips within Worthing. In the summer we have outings to places of interest that are slightly further afield and we also have Sunday drives some with a stop for a cooked lunch and some with a picnic. In December we host a Christmas party, to which all members are invited.
