Rural isolation and bad transport links were one of the reasons why Devon in Sight decided to take their services out into the community by creating Community Sight Loss Hubs.
They now have regular ‘Talk and Support Groups’ over a dozen locations across the county where clients have the opportunity to meet with others with sight loss, hear about the services available for them in their community and receive specialist training.
Their services continue as normal, with the majority being provided from their 13 Community Sight Loss Hubs. These hubs are operated by a community support team consisting of Cathy, Margaret, Rebecca and Tracey. Appointments are available to view lighting and daily living equipment at their new premises and at most of their Community Sight Loss Hubs.

Glaucoma UK’s Board of Trustees is considering changing the charity’s membership model. The result would be that the trustees would become the only voting members.
The Board would continue to draw trustees from our membership and the people we support, and the charity would continue to provide opportunities for the people who use our services to influence how we deliver them.
We would welcome your views.Read More
