Our services aim to help you:

  • stay in the place where you choose to live.

Information for Carers is on the Support and services for Carers page.


We also help to organise regular discussion forums for anyone in Birmingham who

  • has sight loss
  • is deaf or hard of hearing
  • supports someone who has sight loss or is deaf or hard of hearing.

You are welcome to come along, even if you're not getting a service from us.
