About us

Sandwell Visually Impaired is managed and run by blind and visually impaired (VI) people. We give information and support to anyone with an interest in visual impairment across Sandwell. We provide services to enable VI people to be as independent as possible and help overcome the challenges of sight loss. We make sure that the needs and concerns of VI people in Sandwell are embedded in local service planning and delivery.
