“Croydon Vision means a lot to me, coming here has made me see that I am not alone in my difficulties. It also brings perspective as there are people who have sight conditions that are worse than mine and they are managing quite well. Croydon Vison gives people with sight loss dignity, maximising their potential.”
“For me Croydon Vision helps me navigate my essentials through helping me with IT, my smart phone and my resources, all things I use in my daily life. Staff have the knowledge and take the time to help me adapt to these resources, as many organisations do not understand the adjustments needed for someone with a visual impairment.”
“Croydon Vision is a good place to build relationships with other visually impaired people who understand the difficulties of sight loss. I have enjoyed taking part in pottery and the excursions are fantastic, as I get to go to places that I would not ordinarily be able to go by myself.”
“It’s my lifeline. When I come to Croydon Vision I don’t think of my sight loss, I feel normal”
“It is good to see service development for working age as well as the children and young people. There is now more emphasis on reaching out to the wider community and making it more streamlined and professional to members and professionals alike.”
“Excellent service. Croydon Vision does try their best to meet diverse needs. Lunch service has improved, the puddings are great!”
“The people are really lovely and I think it makes members feel normal when they come”.
“I’ve gained more confidence”.
“People at Croydon Vision are really good. I’ve made some good friends”.
“Everyone is very caring and committed to what they do for members. There are various changes and they all have been positive”.
“Croydon Vision is not a building, it’s the people within the building”.
