My Sight Nottinghamshire’s Support Centre is often the first port of call for people across Nottinghamshire who are affected by sight loss. Staff and volunteers are available to demonstrate a range of daily living equipment and higher level technologies. We also provide information and advice to visitors on issues such as how to register, services available at My Sight Nottinghamshire and other organisations that may be able to provide support.
A variety of aids and equipment are available at the My Sight Nottinghamshire Support Centre.
Many of these are daily living items, designed to enable visually impaired people to be more independent in their everyday lives. Examples of this type of equipment are Clocks and Watches, Writing Frames and Guides, Canes and White Walking Sticks, Labelling Devices, Games and Playing Cards, Mobile Phones and Health Products.
We also deal with more specialised equipment, such as electronic magnifiers (portable and desktop) and audio scanners.
If you are interested in viewing or discussing any aids that may support you with your vision, please phone us on 0115 9706 806 book your appointment.
Other bookable services include Magnifier Assesssments and Eccentric Viewing Techniques, Audio Equipment available for loan (British Wireless for the Blind) and our Desktop Magnfier Loan System.
The Support Centre has an abundance of information available for visually impaired people. We can tell you about the various services that My Sight Nottinghamshire offers, including our Support Services, Leisure Services and Transcription Services. All of our information relating to these services is available in large print, audio and Braille formats.

We can also signpost you to other appropriate organisations that may be able to help you in some way, whether this is by providing you with talking books or telling you about holidays on offer.
