About Us

VISOR is a registered charity run by volunteers, many of whom are themselves visually impaired. We offer support and advice and social activities to blind & V.I people across Richmond Borough.   Support to blind & V.I people is especially needed at difficult times such as diagnosis, assessment and registration.  Our volunteers are able to give advice from first hand experience answering questions only the blind can answer for the blind.

We can assist people to get help with technology, home visiting, self directed support and finding other social groups.  Our regular newsletter includes write-ups of our many social trips, future dates for your diary and useful information and ideas. We welcome member contributions.

For help with computers including tablets, magnifiers and speech systems, please contact our Assistive Technology Training & Support service via email at: lwg@blueyonder.co.uk

VISOR hosts a regular social event which features a Quiz and Bingo on the first Tuesday of every month at 7pm, in a function room at the Cabbage Patch pub, at 67 London Road Twickenham TW1 3SZ.  All are welcome to come along and meet us.   

In addition,our VIP Lounge is open on Mondays from 11 till 3 at Sheen Lane centre for membersand guests to meet over tea or coffee for a chat.  Carers and guide dogs are welcome!
