Another initiative we are working on is increasing the number of Community based Support Groups (VIPs). These groups generally meet monthly to listen to a speaker and meet with other Vision Impaired people over a cup of tea. Friendships develop with some people getting together at other times between meetings.
The speakers are from relevant Community based organisations to keep everyone up to date with local issues, or items of interest. We are always available to help start one of these groups and will help anyone who would like a group in their area.
