Each day, hundreds of people are given the news that they are loosing their sight. Sight Service is the leading local provider of services and support for people who are visually impaired and live in Gateshead or South Tyneside.
With our support, advice and information we can enable visually impaired people to have the quality of life which many sighted people take for granted.
We promote greater public awareness of sight loss and work towards achieving better and more accessible public services for visually impaired people.
We rely on our own fundraising effort for much of what we do. You can help by setting up a regular gift donation (link) or a one off donation (link) or consider continuing your support by leaving a Legacy gift (link). Why not get other involved and help fundraise (link) in your local community.
