I have been involved with this organisation for about 4 years now and have nothing but praise for their help for the blind and partially sighted. They are at the end of a phone with advice when ever needed and nothing is too much trouble.

Open Sight Clubs are run by volunteers who give their time and assistance to members with sight loss. This help and assistance is appreciated and both helpers and members gain a great deal by the alliance.

I am commenting on behalf of my Dad who enjoys his monthly meeting at the Portchester club. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. He has gained a lot of support since losing Mum and it's good to know that there is lots of backup from this organisation to help both him and me. Thank you.

Opensight is a very professional organisation which helps people with visual impairment of all ages. They also run social groups throughout Hampshire, which help mainly older people come to terms with sight problems. I owe a lot to this organisation.
