Video Support Group

In order to be able to reach a wider and more diverse audience, we have started running weekly Vision Support Groups using ZOOM Video conferencing. Launched at the beginning of October 2020, these meetings run weekly on a Wednesday - all at 2pm. You do not need a ZOOM account in order to join a meeting, but there are some additional functions available to you if you have one. Essential to being able to connect, is either a telephone or computer device. You can dial in to the meeting and listen to the group, but the video platform gives you a better interactive experience. If connecting by computer, you will need Wi-Fi and a web camera if not built in.

We encourage our service users to set the agenda for the meeting and to provide subjects and questions in advance. We have set out a list of regular topics for discussion, but will also have guest speakers and presentations from technology companies occasionally.

The group meetings allow for the sharing of advice and recommendations between peers and for essential company, conversation and fun.

If you are interested in participating in the weekly groups or would just like to join us occasionally, then please call 01926 411331 and ask for details. Once we have recorded your interest, we will send you an email containing the necessary link to the meeting.

The regular topics for discussion are:

  • WVS Service Updates
  • Equipment / Gadgets – Demo & Discussion
  • Books / Radio / Podcasts
  • Supersaver Offers
  •  IT Updates
  • Current Affairs
  • Open floor – topics for discussion
