Welcome to Insight Gloucestershire
We are the local charity in Gloucestershire dedicated to supporting people living with sight loss or blindness. We aim to ensure that people with low vision can still enjoy their lives and retain their independence by providing tailored advice.
How we can help
We provide information and advice through a range of services. Everyone’s experience of sight loss is different and the advice and information that we give to people will reflect this. Often for many the Insight Helpline 01242 22 11 70 is the first point of call. The Helpline is open Monday – Friday 9am – 1pm. Outside of these times, you can leave a message on the answerphone and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
After initially getting in touch, people will often visit our Low Vision Centre in Cheltenham. Our opening hours are 9am – 1pm, Monday – Friday. In the centre there is a display of daily living aids, assistive technology and equipment. All of which are designed to help those living with low vision. Have a look at our Equipment Catalogue for a peek at some of the items we have on display.
The information and advice that we can offer, covers a wide range of topics. If you have any questions or concerns about your eyes, eye health or indeed are looking to understand how best to support a relative or friend with sight loss please contact us on 01242 22 11 70.
Helpline and Low Vision Centre are open 9am – 1pm Monday – Friday
