Winners of Volunteer Team of the Year and Newbie of the Year!

The winners of the Worcestershire Volunteer Awards have been announced at The Hive.

Worcestershire County Council held the prestigious ceremony on June 9 to coincide with National Volunteers’ Week (June 1-12). The special event was to help promote and celebrate the valuable work of volunteers throughout the county.

Volunteers, members of the public, council representatives and local businesses were in attendance to help celebrate the tireless and dedicated work of volunteers in their local communities, and the difference they make to lives in Worcestershire.

Which Way Now?

The Which Way Now Course is designed specifically for those new to sight loss or those who would like information about topics related to sight loss.

Subjects discussed include benefits advice, available concessions, reading facilities which are available and leisure and travel facilities. There is also low vision aids and equipment on demonstration from our resource room which will help make life easier.

We often have guest speakers who give information about guide dogs, benefits, local societies such as macular groups and reading techniques. The course has also proven beneficial to carers, family members and friends.

The course is 2 ½ hours a week for 3 weeks.
The courses are either held at the Bradbury Centre in Worcester or out in the community.

There is a £10 charge per person to attend the three sessions. This charge includes a carer or friend to attend with you. Please telephone Sight Concern 01905 723245 to find out more details or find out dates, times and venues of the next course.
