About Us

Wiltshire Sight History

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.

The charity has been in existence since 1919 providing information, advice and guidance to local people who are living with sight loss. Through the support of Wiltshire Sight many people are now working in the community or volunteering.

Wiltshire Blind Association was relaunched as Wiltshire Sight on 26th September 2014, along with a new tag line “Supporting people living with sight loss” and a new premises at St Lucy’s. We are now supporting more people than ever in Wiltshire with sight loss, both at our unique sight loss centre in Devizes and in the community. In June 2016, Wiltshire Sight’s project – Looking Out For Sight – placed Runner Up for an innovation award at the Vision Pioneer Awards.

We work within the outline set by the UK 2020 Vision offering people services that promote:

  • Independent living
  • Emotional well-being
  • Financial well-being
  • Social inclusion
