Charity information

Bradbury Fields Services For Blind And Partially Sighted People

We provide statutory rehabilitation services on behalf of the local authority. Our Charitable activities include daily Active Vision clubs and a number of activity groups walking, tandem swimming etc that provide numerous health and well being benefits to local people with a visual impairment. Our Be Active Volunteering service links volunteers and service users to enable them to do many of the things we take for granted. Ie visit shops, church or theatre, or even just to alleviate loneliness.
