The Home Visiting Service is a flexible service offered by volunteers for anyone who is blind or partially sighted living in Dorset:

• One off visit – some sewing, rewriting address/telephone books into large print.

• Specific tasks – sort letters, junk mail, tidy cupboards, write greetings cards etc.

• Short term visits – whilst a person adjusts to new sight condition.

• Regular visits – befriending, a chat over a cup of tea.
• Take a member for a walk or to choose gifts for family or friend.

Dorset Blind Association also has a resource centre for people who are visually or hearing impaired throughout Dorset with advice, support, contacts, information and equipment, and social opportunities across the county.
