Vision North Somerset offer life changing opportunities to local visually impaired people.
Our purpose is to give people with sensory loss an opportunity to reach their potential, to be independent and to participate in their local community.Why the community needs us
Our project is a one stop shop which offers support to people of all ages including helping people get into work and education. Enabling blind and partially sighted people to participate in their community means they can experience the opportunities that are open to everyone. Offering good quality, well supported volunteering opportunities can prepare volunteers for work and help to change their lives too.Our impact on the community
Both visually impaired people and the volunteers that support them will benefit from joining in with community activities. The outcomes of these opportunities will be an improvement in health and wellbeing and a reduction in social isolation and depression which can often occur due to loneliness. And joining our swimming club will certainly help to improve fitness!
We need IT literate volunteers to help visually impaired people learn how to use tablets, phones and computers. Specific training given re access for visually impaired people
