Homecall provides a free service to people with varying degrees of sight loss. Our aims are to enable independent living and alleviate isolation by recruiting volunteers to visit people in their own homes. We have been operating this scheme since 1985 and now cover all of East Sussex, helping over 300 blind and partially sighted clients every week.

All of our volunteer visitors are trained and matched one to one with a client on a long term basis. Visitors help by reading letters, going for a walk together, helping with phone calls, (but not personal care, cooking or domestic work). The list is endless as every client has different needs. Visitors are tactful, helpful and respecting of the confidential nature of their work.

Do you know a visually impaired person who would like to use our service, or do you have the time to visit a client for just an hour each week?
