Social and Interest Groups

Good company, entertainment and refreshment, a contact point for support and information or simply a welcome break from the house- our social groups for visually impaired people offer any or all of these things! Our groups enable people with sight loss to come together and build friendships, share information and tips but most of all- enjoy themselves. We are always looking for new members and if you would prefer, you can come along with a family member or friend for support.

Some of the social groups meet in the afternoon, such as Corby and Wellingborough whilst others such as Northampton and Long Buckby all enjoy a get together over lunch. Everyone looks forward to the annual Christmas parties and Summer outings -weather permitting!
