Charity Spotlight: Wirral Society of the Blind and Partially Sighted

We are always delighted to promote charitable causes that matter to our clients.

In this newsletter, we turn our spotlight on to the Wirral Society of the Blind and Partially Sighted.

The charity was founded in 1989 by a group of visually impaired people and, since then, has gone from strength to strength, despite having to raise 100% of its funding.

Adele Law, who sits on the charity’s board, says: “We help blind and partially sighted people on the Wirral with the practical, emotional and social support they need to live independently with sight loss. We work with people of all ages and their families, providing Low Vision Aids, IT training, an advocacy service as well as clubs, classes and social activities.

“Although our resource centre is in Birkenhead, several of our members live in the Neston area, as we are the only organisation providing these services on the Wirral

“This year, with the end of a substantial grant, we have already had to make staff cuts and curtail some planned activities.

“We are always looking to increase our links with the business community and would love to talk to businesses who may be able to support us in some way. Whilst cash is always welcome – businesses help us by staff fundraising or donating much needed services.”
