Huntingdonshire Society for the Blind

Back to Activities

Huntingdonshire Society for the Blind has provided support to the community since 1922 offering a lifetime of support for people who are blind or partially sighted. Their services are open to anyone in Huntingdonshire who has or is experiencing sight loss.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • Access to a wide range of services and support to meet a variety of needs
  • Improves independence and confidence
  • Provides an opportunity to meet likeminded people at various social groups and outings

“Thank you so much for all your support helping me deal with sight loss.  You have all been fantastic, and I can’t thank you enough.  I’m now feeling a lot more independent and can’t wait to take part in the next social outing”
