Resource Centre

There is a vast array of equipment on the market that can assist people with a sight or hearing impairment in many number of ways. This could be lighting and magnification aids in order to see objects and text more clearly, or simple aids to daily living such as talking watches, speaking mobile phones and tablets, alarm clocks, cooking aids, access to books, vibrating alarm clocks, flashing doorbells etc.

We prefer you to book a visit to the Resource Centre in advance so as to avoid disappointment, particularly as it can take an hour or more for an appropriate assessment, and have a hands-on look at items of interest..

Visitors to the Resource Centre often come with their partner, friend, family escort or carer and they are very welcome to participate in the experience.

If a personal companion is not available to assist you with your visit, Sight for Surrey will endeavour to provide you with a volunteer driver, for which we rely on donations.

At the moment our Resource is closed for face to face appointments but if you need an item from the list above or would like to discuss some equipment, please call the Helpdesk on 01372 377701 or email helpdesk@sightforsurrey.org.uk
