Mobile Support Service

A picture of the Mobile Support Service vehicle.

Our mobile support service is back out in the community again in line with the latest government guidelines.

Vista's mobile support service is touring Leicestershire and Rutland, providing information, support and advice about eye health and assistive technology.

1.8 million people are living with significant sight loss in the UK, and evidence suggests that over 50 percent of sight loss is due to preventable or treatable causes. People with sight loss can often feel isolated when they do not have easy access to information and technologies that could improve their everyday lives. We believe that advice and support should be available in even the most rural communities, so we've taken our services on the road.

Our specially designed vehicle features a welcome area, leaflet display and seating area for individual consultation and support. Our friendly staff are offering free advice about reducing the risk of sight loss, as well as the support and services available through Vista. The team are also on hand to demonstrate equipment and technologies designed for people with sight loss.
