Silver Dreams OPTiC
We aim to reduce isolation and empower older people with sight loss to gain access to the services and support they need and provide support to each other. By delivering in partnership with five national-level organisations, we can bring a huge range of services and expertise to this essential project.
The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) is the UK’s leading charity offering information, support and advice to almost two million people with sight loss and to people who work within the sight loss community. We have three clear priorities:
1. Stopping people losing their sight unnecessarily
2. Supporting blind and partially sighted people to live independently
3. Creating an inclusive society
Age UK Group has a vision of a world in which older people flourish. We aim to improve later life for everyone through our information and advice, campaigns, products, training and research.
Action for Blind People
Action for Blind People is a national charity with local reach, providing practical help and support to blind and partially sighted people of all ages.
Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service
Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service undertake a number of activities, all aimed at making our Staffordshire communities safer and stronger. We know that responding to emergencies is our first duty but we also recognise we can help prevent fires in the home and at work – so hopefully you’ll never need to dial 999.
We run a number of services designed to inform and help members of the community to protect their homes and business premises. Whether it’s educating children or raising awareness of road safety among drivers, we know that what we do can have a significant impact – reducing risk and saving lives.
York Blind and Partially Sighted Society
York Blind and Partially Sighted Society is a thriving, independent local charity, working to help people with sight problems to be independent. Our mission is to advocate, develop and provide, services and facilities which enable people who are blind or partially sighted, achieve independence with dignity, in all aspects of life and sectors of society.
