A warm welcome is waiting for you at

Southend Blind Welfare Organisation’s Equipment and Information Centre.  

 

We are here to give help and support to all those suffering with sight loss.

Whether you have a newly diagnosed eye condition or whether you have been managing but in fact ‘struggling’ with gradually deteriorating

eyesight over a longer period of time - We can help !

                                                                                                                                                     

 

At the Centre we have a variety of different aids for you to try: lighting,

electronic magnifiers,  reading and writing aids, talking and easy see products (including computer software and mobile phones).

We also have equipment to help with day-to-day tasks.

A visit to the Centre will give you the opportunity to find out

about other local and national services which may be of interest to

you, such as: Talking Books and Newspapers,The Big Print

Newspaper & TV Guide, and Audio Description.

The Equipment Loan Scheme is a service we provide to all registered

blind or partially sighted people living in the Southend, Rayleigh,

Rochford and Castle Point area.  The loan scheme enables you to

try one of the larger pieces of equipment at home on a trial basis.  

In this way you are able to see whether the equipment will be useful

for you, before you consider buying your own.

The service is free of charge but in order to be considered for the

scheme, we ask that you visit the Equipment and Information Centre

and try the different equipment first.
