In its early days Sight Concern was made up of branch committees, all made up of volunteers, who visited people, organised social activities and provided gifts and grants for blind people in their local area.
Each group is run by an experienced Advice & Support Officer with the support of trained volunteers.
There is a subsidised charge of £4.00 per session.
We run regular groups in Worcester, Bromsgrove, Kidderminster, Redditch, Evesham and Malvern.
