This web site is designed to enable ease of use for the visually impaired







Southend Blind Welfare Organisation is an independent charity which provides

practical help to visually impaired people in and around the Southend-on-Sea area.












More projects are already in place and we are planning exciting new services to

give visually impaired people the chance to do what they want and opportunities

to gain confidence  and 21st century skills.
