Scottish Charity S C 028452.
A Help Line for the Visually Impaired.
The Listening Eye has been set up to offer Support for anyone with a sight problem throughout the United Kingdom. It was set up by a group of blind people with long established experience of living with visual impairment, and who are willing to listen or chat about particular problems or offer advice if asked.
This service was set up to provide a contact to local agencies where necessary, and was established primarily to help those in rural areas who feel isolated by their visual handicap. However, it is also as relevant for any visually impaired person or their carers where ever they live, and can often help by way of a sounding board or to allay fears about sight related problems.
We offer support and empathy to anyone who needs the chance to talk about any aspect of failing sight.
The service is available between 6 and 10 pm Tuesday Wednesday or Thursday
evenings on Freefone 0800 783 1979.
We would be grateful if you could publicise this service and help us gain the widest circulation possible in a medium accessible to all.
For further information or leaflets please do not hesitate to contact me.
Listening Eye is a Scottish independent Charity and this year is funded by a Camelot Foundation Grant.
Charity Number SC 028452.
Thank you in advance for your help and co-operation.
