iSightCornwall is one of the oldest charities in Cornwall. Founded in 1856, we are proud of our heritage of supporting people with visual impairments to lead active and independent lives.
We know from experience that losing your sight is traumatic. For most people it is devastating news and takes time to adapt. For some people it can take a few months, for others it takes years. The emotional reaction resembles that of grieving and can lead to feelings of isolation and depression. We are there every step of the way offering emotional support as well as practical advice about technology, equipment and visual aids that make daily living easier.
All of our funding is generated locally and all the money raised in Cornwall stays in Cornwall to provide essential services for the 22,000 people living with sight loss.
One in five people will live with sight loss during their lifetime so by choosing iSightCornwall as your charity of the year, you will be helping to make a real difference to the lives of local people. In return we offer bespoke training, volunteering and fundraising opportunities to help your organisation make a meaningful impact.
We’ll be on hand to support you and to ensure you know exactly where the money you have raised will be spent. We want you to truly feel part of the work we are doing and for you to know how much your support is needed and valued.
