As a grant making organisation, our focus is on generating funds to distribute to our member charities and other local blind welfare organisations.  Our members are always in need of volunteers to help with providing services in their respective local communities.

“I came to Sutton Vision in a desperate state following a sudden loss of sight.  By becoming a volunteer at the charity I found others who had many more disabilities than I and I enjoyed being able to assist them.  I am a lucky one whose sight has been partially restored.  Volunteering helped my depression and made me realise I was still able to do a lot of things!  Thank you Sutton Vision.” Anon
