Virtual Socials

During this difficult time where many of you may feel particularly isolated, we are keen to make sure you are ok. Whilst we are prevented from face to face contact, what we can offer is the opportunity to have a chat. If you are interested, please get in touch either by emailing services@essexsight.org.uk or ringing us on 01206 548196 and we will take your details and arrange to call you at a convenient time.


Essex Sight Social events  – temporary closure update 18/03/20

Following government and WHO advice, we are suspending all face to face services until further notice. We will still be manning the phone and online services, so we are still here if you need us. Please stay safe during this difficult time.
