We are an entirely independent charity and have to raise all of our own funds to be able to provide our range of services.

Our Vision
Our vision is a world where blind and partially sighted people have the confidence to reach their full potential and opportunities to play an active role in society.

Our Mission
Our Mission is to support blind and partially sighted people to lead independent and fulfilling lives.
We support individuals with sight loss, their families, carers and friends. We also provide advice to professionals, members of the public, community groups and anyone else who wants to make a positive difference to the lives of people with sight loss.
We have a large network of local and national professionals who we can call on to support us such as GP’s, opticians and other charities.

If you are facing sight loss, or know someone who is, then please get in touch with us by phone on 01905 723 245 or by email.

Our name changed in 2009.

The charity is officially registered as’ Worcestershire Association for the Blind’, but we operate day to day as ‘Sight Concern Worcestershire’.

Why did we change?

The name was changed in 2009 to show a more modern approach to the work that we do and to stop alienation of the very people we want to support. The word ‘blind’, although having a strong impact, can be rather frightening. It’s also somewhat misleading as very few visually impaired people are completely blind. Many people told us they did not think they ‘qualified’ for our services as they were not registered as blind, only partially sighted or sight impaired. Others told us they were fearful of losing any their remaining sight and didn’t want to think about ‘going blind’.

We carried out a consultation exercise with people with sight loss and other people with connections to the charity. Our new name, Sight Concern Worcestershire, was the most popular.

Taking the plunge!

A huge thank you from everyone at Sight Concern to Karolina who threw herself out of a plane to raise funds for us. An incredible feat by all accounts. Karolina said the experience was exhilarating, which is why she jumped twice! If you want to donate...
