Helping hands for the blind is a life-enhancing charity supporting children and adults who are blind or partially sighted throughout Basingstoke and the adjacent Hampshire Boroughs.
Sight loss can be a devastating and challenging reality for thousands of people in our local communities and Helping hands for the blind is committed to promoting independence and opportunities for people with severe or partial sight impairments, and in helping them and their carers to access any support they may need.
Helping hands for the blind advises on and provides services and equipment that enable visually impaired people to live independent lives.
Modern technology and a greater awareness have encouraged a generation of visually impaired people to seek out new and innovative ways to overcome the restrictions of sight los and Helping hands for the blind has moved to respond to these exciting challenges.
We are at the forefront of the local voluntary sector, providing services that empower visually impaired people to live more independently and achieve their true potential within their own community. We deliver a range of support services to visually impaired people in Basingstoke and the adjacent Hampshire Boroughs, from our support and resource offices located at:
The Roger Morris Centre, Eastrop Way, Basingstoke, Hampshire, RG21 4QE.
We have a small team of dedicated volunteers that support the charity and our members, our trustees of the charity are also unpaid volunteers who bring their passion and professional skills to aid the charity’s development.
Despite being few in number we aim to support any of the people in Basingstoke and the adjacent Hampshire Boroughs.
From our experience, we know that the numbers of visually impaired people, and their carers, seeking our help will only increase and raising the necessary funds over the long term is key to our success. You can help us do that in a number of ways so please visit our Helping us page.
