Welcome to the Award winning charity and website of Helping hands for the blind.
Helping hands for the blind is a charitable organisation that provides a variety of services which aim to enhance the quality of life for all visually impaired adults, children and their families within the Basingstoke and Dean Borough. We offer equipment, information and support to the visually impaired local community.
Established in 2012 and the Destination Basingstoke ”Pride of Basingstoke “ award winner in 2018 was a milestone on the achievements of the charity and the work that it does. Our current Chairperson ” David Chatten-Smith ” was also awarded the Groundworks ” Community Leader 2018 ” award for his commitment to the community.
Sight loss can be a devastating and challenging reality for thousands of people in our local communities and Helping hands for the blind is committed to promoting independence and opportunities for people with severe or partial sight impairments, and in helping them and their carers to access any support they may need.
We are at the forefront of the local voluntary sector, providing services that empower visually impaired people to live more independently and achieve their true potential within their own community.
We deliver a range of support services to visually impaired people in Basingstoke and the adjacent Hampshire Boroughs, from our support and resource offices located at: The Roger Morris Centre, Eastrop Way, Basingstoke, Hampshire, RG21 4QE.
We have a small team of dedicated volunteers that support our services and all of our trustees of the charity are also unpaid volunteers who bring their passion and professional skills to aid the charity’s development.
Despite being few in numbers we aim to support any of the people in Basingstoke and the adjacent Hampshire Boroughs.
