Diana discusses Warwickshire Vision Support Centres
Covid 19 Crisis : We are recruiting volunteers NOW to support some of the most vulnerable visually impaired people within Warwickshire. To date we have completed 3000+ welfare checks and are now commencing ‘Telephone Befriending’ and are looking for volunteers to help us out. As a precautionary measure we have closed our Vision Support Centres and our Recreational Clubs and today have suspended our Home Visiting Service. We are very mindful that many of our service users rely on our support services as they serve as a lifeline preventing loneliness and isolation. We would like to offer as many visually impaired people as possible the chance to receive regular phone contact and conversation so that they feel connected and less isolated. Please call us now on 01926 411331 or email Volunteers@warwickshire.vision for more details.
The befriending service supports 100 people living with sight loss to maintain their independence. Find out more about the Home Visitor Service
