Featured Member: Bournemouth Blind Society

Founded in 1911, Bournemouth Blind Society staff and volunteers continue with the same passion as the charity’s founders, to support local blind and partially sighted people.

We work both at our Centre in Moordown and out in the community. The Centre is treated as ‘home’ by many of our members. Everyone is given a warm, friendly welcome. We can provide hot food, a varied programme of activities, advice and support. Our Centre is open from 9am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.

We have a modern Resource Centre, where we can demonstrate equipment designed to help those with sight or hearing loss. Items available range from a talking watch to a device that reads written print out aloud. In the Hearing Centre, visitors can test amplified phones and TV listening devices. Anyone is welcome to call into the Resource Centre, Monday to Friday 10am until 1pm, no appointments are necessary.

Training is available in our Assistive Technology Suite for visually impaired people to learn how to use modern technology, such as computers, tablets and smart phones.

Our services in the community include Emotional Support, Befriending, Community Support and Guiding. These are all designed to help people remain independent and reduce isolation.

One young man who had recently lost most of his sight, said, “Thank you to all the staff for making me whole again, for giving me respect and allowing me to be me.” We are not able to restore sight, but we can give dignity, hope and encouragement to those whose lives are devastated by their loss of vision.

Bournemouth Blind Society is an independent, local charity. We are not affiliated with any other group. We receive a small conditional grant from the Local Authority; otherwise we are self-financing, relying on donations, fundraising activities and legacies to meet our costs.

We are grateful to the team of volunteers who help us in so many ways – if you would like to consider volunteering with us, please contact Chief Executive Philip Tarrant to discuss opportunities.

Philip says, “We promote a positive attitude and encourage all who come to us to realise that whilst sight loss brings challenges, there are many ways to overcome these. The satisfaction of witnessing a blind person doing Archery, riding on a tandem or painting a picture, when they thought they would never do this again, is incredible.’ If you know anyone with sight loss, please encourage them to visit or give us a call. We are here to help”:
