You may have read in the local press and heard on Talking News that Tameside Sight is closing down.
This is definitely not the case.
From January 2019 the office of Tameside Sight at Wellington Parade will be open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9.00am until 4.30pm.
In December 2018, the office will be opening on Wednesdays as usual but you may find it open on other days as Maria Booth, the new worker, settles in.
You can contact the office any time on 0300 222 5555 (Henshaws Society for Blind People) or 0161 343 4090 (Tameside Sight).
Tameside Sight supports the visually impaired residents of Tameside, Greater Manchester with befriending, advocacy and information services and also acts as an umbrella group for social clubs.
The Charity provides services which enable visually impaired people to develop as individuals and feel valued within the community.
All visually impaired people in Tameside, carers and friends are able to access Tameside Sight’s services.
