The Association works across East Suffolk from Shotley in the south to Lowestoft in the north and from the coast inland to Eye. As a charity, we raise all of our funds ourselves and use them to provide support for around 1400 local blind and partially sighted people in East Suffolk.
The Association aims to provide welfare across the age spectrum, but inevitably the vast majority of our members are in the older age bracket. We do not currently deliver services specifically for children and young people. However we can signpost parents and carers to other organisations who do, including voluntary organisations, local authorities, education and library departments, and carer organisations.
We work closely with the Sensory Support Team of Suffolk County Council Social Services and the national blind charities such as the Royal National Institute for the Blind, Guide Dogs for the Blind, Action for Blind People and St. Dunstan's
