what can we do for you?
We aim to promote social interaction and independence for those with sight impairment. We do this by working with the local community to provide activities and accessibility to local support and opportunities.
Whether you’re after a regular activity with like-minded people, some information on how to make life easier, access to technology or visual aids, or help getting to and from an appointment, Sight Support Worthing can help.
we offer a range of support and services from our centre in Worthing:
● Our tech scheme – providing devices on loan to buy, discounted software, tech support and troubleshooting
● Information on services that can provide assistance such as ROVI’s (Rehabilitation Officers for the Vision Impaired)
● Transport – to our activities or for appointments elsewhere
● Regular activities which can range from exercise classes, crafting or shopping trips
● Group trips out
● A friendly pair of ears ready to provide support and advice
Sight Support Worthing is made up of a friendly team based at the Centre and our governing board of trustees – some of whom also volunteer for us!
We are also supported by an amazing band of Sight Supporters who do everything from driving our minibus to sorting out our resources.
Our dedicated trustees oversee the aims of Sight Support Worthing., Barry Ward is our Chairman. Alongside him are Cherry Ward, Dee Darters, Frances Jacobs, Neil Clarke, Martin Bloomfield, and Dawn O’Donnell. Our President is Worthing Councillor Bob Smytherman
