Wakefield District Sight Aid

Wakefield District Sight Aid was formed in 1869. We are here to support all adult visually impaired people, their families, carers and sight care professionals across the Wakefield district.

We do this through a variety of practical and wider wellbeing services, including:
* Home visits to assess for, provide, and advise on the use of certain safety equipment
* Community outreach work to reduce social isolation (e. G. Day trips, coffee mornings)
* Befriending services
* Quarterly newsletter

Founded 1869

  • Mission statement

    Our mission is to:
    * Help anyone affected by sight impairment to improve their confidence and independence

    We believe that visually impaired people in our community should have access to the same opportunities and quality of life as fully sighted people. We want to support all blind and partially sighted people across the Wakefield district area, raise awareness about good eye health and care, and reduce social isolation.
