Calendar of Events

Our monthly Telephone Sight Loss Speaker Events normally take place on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. You can enjoy these events from the comfort of your own home.

In addition to the Sight Loss Speaker Events, in January 2022 we will be starting a new weekly telephone-based service Chit Chat Calls on every Wednesday and these will be hosted by Judy Pride.

Unlike our Telephone Speaker Events, the Chit-Chat Calls will be your chance to air thoughts, concerns, ideas and to share your recent stories in a safe space.

To join a Sight Loss Speaker Event or the Chit Chat calls choose the event that you would like to join from the program below. A couple of minutes before the start time dial the Freephone number below. All events start promptly at 10.30am and will conclude at 11.30am.

Freephone 0808 169 79 30

When you dial in you should hear a welcome message and holding music before the presentation starts.

During the main presentation you will be able to hear the conversation but not participate in the call. However, questions can be submitted in advance by ringing the Helpline. Depending on the nature of the presentation, the host may open the call up to questions from listeners.

Calls from your home telephone are FREE but calls from mobiles are charged at the standard network tariff.

All events should finish within 60 minutes.

Please note that all Sight Loss Speaker Events are recorded so that they can be shared on our website.  The Chit Chat calls on a Wednesdays will not be recorded.
