Sight Support Worthing is the operational name for Worthing Society for the Blind, a registered charity and one of the longest surviving independent charities in Worthing which was founded in 1910.

Striving to attract new members, Worthing Society for the Blind rebranded to Sight Support Worthing in 2017 in the hope of attracting more members and extending its services to those who would benefit from the activities, advice and support that it can provide.

In particular, Sight Support Worthing would like to encourage younger generations to take advantage of the many facilities and activities on offer and build a community to support each other.

The aims 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 Borough of Worthing.
