'Nobility' Sculpted by a Vision Support Member

We are an independent, local charity

We exist to support visually impaired people in Harrogate, Ripon and the surrounding district. We seek to enable visually impaired people to live independently and provide opportunities to meet and interact with other visually impaired people. We offer Information Technology training; provide advice on the help that is available; information on what being visually impaired means; opportunities to socialise, develop, or re-awaken craft skills. In addition to activities in the Centre, the Society undertakes home visits and runs a telephone befriending service to help tackle social isolation. We have regular contact with over 300 visually impaired people, as well as being a point of contact for 400 more. The Society is entirely funded by voluntary donations and our work is made possible by the contribution of many volunteers. If you would like to visit us, give to us, join us to use the service or to volunteer, this website will help you.
