You can get involved in our fortnightly and monthly events for people with visual impairment!

Trying a new event can be a positive and rewarding way to become involved in the community.

Are you interested in participating in a new activity? Sports and fitness activities, book groups, arts and crafts groups are all groups we're investigating, so please give us a call if you have visual impairment and would like to become involved.
