Event Details

Venue: Cramlington Community Hub, Manor Walks Shopping Centre, Cramlington, NE23 6YB

Are you blind or partially sighted and live in Northumberland?

Do you want to get a broader picture on the support available to you in your area?

Do you have questions or concerns that you would like to raise to care and support representatives and providers in your area?

Come along to Northumberland Sight Loss Council’s upcoming ‘Living with Sight Loss’ VI forum!

Healthwatch Northumberland has commissioned a study to better understand the support available for people living with sight loss in the county and aims to identify where the gaps lie in the support available.

This event will help inform this study and will provide the opportunity for visually impaired people to share their experiences of using eye health and care services. The event will also be a great way for you to find information about your local eye services and what support is available to you.

Speakers will include:

Derry Nugent – Project Coordinator Healthwatch Northumberland

Julie Boyack – Chief Officer, Vision Northumberland (formerly Northumberland County Blind Association)

Northumberland & Tyne & Wear Local Optical Committee

Representatives from Hospital Eye Services

Northumberland Sight Loss Council members
