Birmingham Vision is a registered charity that works with visually impaired people and their families. Our aim is to ensure that people living with a visual impairment in Birmingham can lead active and fulfilled lives. We were established in April 2015 and are based in Birmingham City Centre.
The dedicated team can provide the answers to your questions; signpost you to support groups, offer advice for family and carers or make a referral for you to access support from one of our partner organisations. If you or someone you know is visually impaired, we’re here to help.
What we do
We want you to get the most out of life and enjoy yourself.
The Social Inclusion Coordinator arranges regular trips to various places in and around Birmingham, as well as holding monthly groups such as 10 pin bowling, a Pub Night and a coffee morning.
Our Sports Coordinator offers a wide range of sports and leisure activities for all ages that suit every fitness level and ability. Our sports programme is busy and varied all year round which not only serves as an opportunity to increase your fitness, but also gives you a chance to get out of the house and meet new people.
Two dedicated Eye Clinic Liaison Officers (ECLOs) work at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and Birmingham Midland Eye Centre. You may be referred to one of them at the hospital if your sight is deteriorating or after a diagnosis, or you can request and appointment yourself. The ECLO’s are there to support you and your family.
We believe that sight loss doesn’t mean job loss. Our Employment Coordinatorwill support employees, employers and job seekers to access all the help and information available.
