What’s Happening

Improving accessibility

We’re excited to be improving the accessibility of Croydon Vision over January and February 2022 and we’re adapting our services while the builders are working.
Please feel free to get in touch to find out about our adapted services and activities, some of which will be virtual and some of which will be relocated.

Connecting generations

At Croydon Vision we pride ourselves on working with people of all ages who are visually impaired or blind. We deliver a range of services which are tailor made according to our members’ age and individual needs.  

We categorise age groups into the following: 

During the week we run a series of social groups, activities and workshops for those aged over 18. The Children & Young People’s Project runs once a month and during all school holidays and half terms. This year we focused on running activities for all ages to join in together – including a Summer BBQ and quiz night.  

Our members come to Croydon Vision for a variety of reasons: some wish to volunteer, seek help or advice about employment opportunities and others like to socialise and catch up over coffee or lunch. Croydon Vision has become a lifeline for many of our members and our transport ensures all of our members can easily access our services.
