Our social groups offer a supportive environment for people with sight loss to come together and take part in social activities or events.
With an interesting range of activities on offer, from flower arranging, pottery and crafts, to gardening, yoga and keeping fit, as well as occasional trips to local shops and restaurants, there is always something to enjoy.
People who attend our social groups have made friends for life. They're a fantastic way to meet people with similar experiences and a great opportunity to get out and have fun. We run regular groups throughout Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and always welcome new members.
There is an annual subscription charge of £20 payable by each group member. Each session costs £25 and includes a two course hot lunch, and transport if you are assessed as requiring it.
Our groups are based in Loughborough, Oakham, Braunstone, Lutterworth, Market Harborough, Thurnby, Coalville, Melton Mowbray, Syston and Hinckley.
