MySight York's Home Visiting Service provides free, one-to-one support and friendship to people living with sight loss.
Due to the coronavirus crisis our home visiting service has moved to a telephone and garden visit service.
The service seeks to enable people to retain as much independence as possible and to reduce social isolation.
Volunteers are carefully matched and can visit people in their own homes or at other locations, depending on the individual needs and interests of those using the service.
Examples of things a volunteer and client might do include: Reading and sorting mail, shopping together, writing cards, reading out loud for pleasure, going for a walk, exercising or participating in a hobby together or having a chat over a cuppa.
Please note that volunteers do not carry out any personal care, undertake cleaning, food shopping for clients or household chores.
