London Vision South West supports people living with sight loss in the boroughs of:

  • Croydon
  • Merton
  • Sutton
  • Wandsworth
  • Kingston
  • Richmond

It is estimated that there are over 35,000 people living with sight loss across these London boroughs.

The aim of London Vision South West is to support existing sight loss charities to build capacity and to aid the development of services for blind and partially sighted people across this part of London. 

We assist local charities by helping with fundraising applications and provide consultancy and advice to assist their development. We take the avoidance of duplication of services seriously and are keen to support organisations delivering direct services in the region.

Through our Works for Me programme, we deliver direct employment services from the offices of our partners in local visual impairment societies. If you’re experiencing difficulties at work or looking for a job, you can make an appointment with our expert advisor at a visual impairment society near you.      

We are beginning to collaborate with the RNIB and our member charities to increase the number of Living with Sight Loss events in the area. These valuable courses are a blend of practical and emotional support for people with sight loss.     

We also work with Clinical Commissioning Groups, Local Authorities and Hospital Trusts to advocate for improved services for people with sight loss. We are committed to getting the voices of people with sight loss heard by facilitating the Kingston Visual Impairment Parliament. The parliament is an excellent method for blind and partially sighted Kingston residents to raise issues with the authorities.
