Befriender/Phone Buddy

During the period of the Covid 19 pandemic we have found that having Volunteers who are happy to make phone calls to others is becoming a benefit for everyone that is involved. It is lovely to be able to have a chat with someone about the kind of day they have had, or to listen to a story being read or even having a sing song.

About SeeAbility

We don't underestimate people.

SeeAbility encourages people with disabilities to challenge what they expect from life, from themselves and from wider society.

The people we support overcome huge barriers to achieve exciting new things every day: some big, some small, all extraordinary.

They challenge us all to rethink disability.

SeeAbility provides extraordinary support and champions better eye care for people with learning disabilities and autism, many of whom have sight loss.

Registered as The Royal School for the Blind, SeeAbility is one of the oldest disability charities in the UK and has pioneered specialist support for over 200 years.

Help us rethink disability.
