The Sightline Story

Image description: A visually impaired person sat at a desk reading braille talking on the telephone.

Established in 2003, Sightline was set up by Eileen Green who was herself registered blind. She identified a need for visually impaired people to have an opportunity to communicate their experiences, from the comfort of their home.

Sadly, Eileen died suddenly in 2013 but her legacy lives on through Sightline, a registered charity based in Lancashire, but operating across the UK.

Today, Sightline provides an innovative service focused on delivering practical and emotional support to blind and partially sighted people, through a free* telephone befriending service.

Our service is staffed by volunteers who understand
sight loss through their own personal experience of it,
to provide emotional support and guidance.
