Essex Vision is a unique partnership of sight loss support organisations in Essex. They are all independent organisations and geographically cover the majority of Essex. These organisations include:
- Support 4 Sight
- Essex Sight
- Southend Blind Welfare
In addition, Essex Vision has joined forces with other organisations to develop a befriending service. There are two services available:
- Face to face befriending where a volunteer visits you at home, or helps you to a social event.
- Telephone befriending where a volunteer befriender phones or Skypes you for a chat.
Their befrienders are trained volunteers who provide friendly conversation and companionship on a regular basis over a long period of time.
