Focus on Sunset

Wiltshire Sight exists to help people affected by sight loss in Wiltshire and Swindon. We support more than 1,500 people, of all ages, living with some form of sight loss.

We offer information, advice and guidance, giving people practical and emotional support to help them in their daily lives. We have a fully equipped resource centre at St Lucy’s in Devizes, offering-of-the-art assistive technology products and low vision aids.

Eye Give – regular giving


Just £2 a month can help support someone living with sight loss. By donating to Wiltshire Sight you will be joining a growing community of supporters. Your generosity will help to fund services to people living locally with sight loss, ensuring they get the best information and advice available and help us raise awareness of the impact of sight loss.

£2 per month, or whatever you can afford, will make sure that Wiltshire Sight can continue to run valuable services such as our resource centre and assistive technology suite. And, spreading your donation across the year in small monthly donations helps us to plan our service delivery better, providing more services for more people. This means our regular supporters are vital to making lives better for people living with sight loss.
There are many people who turn to us each year for advice and support. Any charity donation, no matter how small, would play a big part in keeping our valuable service running.

Thank you.

“Wiltshire Sight has helped me move forward with my life. They’ve shown me ways to adapt to my sight loss and made sure I’m getting the support I need.” J.K, 42
