Lockdown 3 – Our support for you

Once again, we are all continuing to face challenging and uncertain times due to the Covid-19 virus and in particular, the impact the new variant of the disease is having on our day to day lives.

The quickest way for you to access support, information or guidance for anything related to your sight loss and eye health is to call us on 01243 828555.

We will continue doing everything we can to safely maintain the support and services we provide for blind and visually impaired people in West Sussex. Once again, we need to make changes to the way we operate – most notably and sadly, by suspending all of our face-to-face activities, which means that;

  • Our Support Centres in Bognor Regis and Shoreham will be closed to the public until further notice.
  • Our outreach services in the community will be suspended, including drop-in centres, home visits, low vision assessments and any other face to face interactions.
  • All 4Sight Vision Support social clubs and activities remain online only until further notice.

We will continue to support you by phone, email, text and by using digital technology.

Please continue to check back to this page for updates as we follow the most recent government advice. 

Please call us on 01243 828555 for any advice or support.
