Geographical remit: 


The Wilberforce Trust are committed to supporting people with sight loss and hearing loss. We do this through our supported living accommodation, low vision clinic, visual awareness training, sensory awareness sessions and activities within the living and learning zone.

Our vision is to see a world in which all people with sight loss, including those with other disabilities, are truly integrated in society with equal opportunities in all aspects of life, and to know that our passion and commitment have been influential in bringing this about.

Our mission is to; be a leading provider of high quality support, training and care services; to create opportunities for people with sight loss, including those with other disabilities; to encourage and facilitate the development of these on a local, regional and national basis by being a model of good practice. Our aim is to do this in a way which enhances the quality of life of those we work with.
