Vision Support Centre

Located in the centre of Barrow-in-Furness the newly opened Vision Support Centre provides a drop-in centre where a variety of services are provided.  Information and advice can be gained from trained staff who are able to demonstrate a variety of daily living aids, lights, magnifiers and other specialist equipment.  

We also have a seated area where visitors are encouraged to stop for a chat and share a cuppa. Perhaps we can tell you about all the activities going on in the area for visually impaired people and their families.

If you would like to talk privately with one of our Vision Support Officers we also have a quiet room for this.


We produce a quarterly newsletter, Viewpoint, which is full of interesting articles relating to sight loss and what is happening within our charity at the moment.

Please get in touch with us if you would like to receive a hard copy or alternatively below are copies of recent issues. 

Talking Newspapers

A team of volunteers select and record a selection of news items from around the area which is available below. Vision Support also distribute via CDs every fortnight.
