Established in 1895, the Isle of Wight Society for the Blind (IWSB) is one of the oldest independent charities on the Isle of Wight.
We are inviting clients and prospective clients to have their say and identify their priorities in a consultation exercise that will help determine IWSB future plans and activities.
Our continuing purpose is to provide practical, emotional and educational support for visually impaired people, their families and carers and promote awareness of the needs of those affected by sight loss amongst the general public.
We strive to help people maintain independence, learn new skills and participate in social, physical and educational activities to reduce loneliness and isolation.
Currently we organise weekly coffee mornings, educational talks and seminars, craft clubs, weekly swimming sessions, walking and golf, a visiting and befriending service, a weekly audio version of the Isle of Wight County Press and a library of audio books.
To help ensure the services we provide in the future meet the needs of our existing and potential clients, the Society will use the survey to guide and develop our strategic plans. With your help we can ensure that our resources are targeted wisely to meet your needs.
Thank you very much for participating in this survey. Your feedback is invaluable in guiding our future.
