Wiltshire Sight is an independent charity supporting people living with sight loss in Wiltshire and Swindon. We assist more than 2,500 people of all ages, as well as their families and carers.

We offer information, advice and guidance, as well as 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 state-of-the-art assistive technology products and low vision aids.

Why not visit our centre to find out more or give us a call for more information. You can also sign up to our newsletter for regular updates.

Wiltshire Sight do not charge for their services and receive no statutory funding. Therefore, if you like what we do, please consider making a donation – click here – that will enable us to continue to support the growing number of people with sight loss in Wiltshire.
