Homecall is a home visiting scheme for the visually impaired in Bexhill and surrounding areas. Leah commented: “Homecall provides a free service, funded entirely by grants, legacies, donations and ongoing fundraising events.

As a registered charity our aim is to recruit, train and support volunteers who will visit blind and partially sighted people in their homes.

“Through this, as a team, we are able to enhance the quality of their lives and offer the much-appreciated support of someone who understands their sight loss.

“The opportunities to help are many and varied.”
