Alnwick Story Fest are delighted to be working in partnership with Vision Northumberland who offer client-led support to individuals in Northumberland, living with a visual impairment. Our tailored services are delivered face-to-face, via telephone and email.
It is estimated there are over 18,000 vision impaired people throughout Northumberland, many of whom experience feelings of social isolation and exclusion which can impact general health and well-being.
Vision Northumberland is a local charity that provides advice and support services to vision impaired people to enable individuals to gain the knowledge, confidence and skills necessary to increase independence and fulfil life potential.
Vision Northumberland's dedicated team of staff is supported by over 160 volunteers and operates from a purpose built sensory hub in Morpeth as well as outreach centres across Northumberland.
