BucksVision supports visually impaired people living in Buckinghamshire. We provide an advice and information service, social activities, IT training, equipment support and visual awareness training. Losing your sight is one of the most daunting things for someone to face and, along with the Statutory provider, BucksVision helps its clients cope with their sight loss and provides vital support to ensure they can continue to live independently and reduce their social isolation (which is one of the biggest issues faced by people with vision loss).


Advice and information service- staff provide general advice to support people living with sight loss and their families/friends. This advice is provided by a qualified Rehabilitation Officer and is vital in helping people cope with their sight loss.
Information on equipment- there are various aids that can assist a visually impaired person with daily living, reading and communication skills. We have a resource room where clients can view and try equipment and can assist with procurement.
Social Activities- we offer social activities across the county. The clubs and groups, run by volunteers, give our clients an opportunity to interact with their community and reduce their social isolation.
IT training- technology can greatly improve the way our clients communicate with the wider community and BucksVision offers IT training to clients at our resource centre or in their own home. The training covers the use of screen reading software and Apple technology (which is very accessible to VI people)
