Aids and Equipment

We have a well-equipped resource centre with a wide range of products built to help blind and partially sighted people maintain their independence. Although we only sell smaller items, we can order items for you or simply provide information on any product.

A product that works for one person won’t necessarily work for another so please come and visit. Contact us to arrange a visit, our Aids and Equipment Coordinator will demonstrate, inform and give you advice on all the products in our resource centre.

Try Before You Buy

Our ‘Try Before You Buy’ scheme enables you to take products home for up to 8 weeks so that you can be sure the item works for you. After 8 weeks, if you are happy with the item, we can help you order it and provide any further information. This is a free service and only available to our members.
