A warm welcome is waiting for you at
Southend Blind Welfare Organisation’s Equipment and Information Centre.
We are here to give help and support to all those suffering with sight loss.
Whether you have a newly diagnosed eye condition or whether you have been managing
but in fact ‘struggling’ with gradually deteriorating
eyesight over a longer period of time - We can help !
At the Centre we have a variety of different aids for you to try: lighting,
electronic magnifiers, reading and writing aids, talking and easy see products (including
computer software and mobile phones).
We also have equipment to help with day-to-day tasks.
A visit to the Centre will give you the opportunity to find out
about other local and national services which may be of interest to
you, such as: Talking Books and Newspapers,The Big Print
Newspaper & TV Guide, and Audio Description.

The Equipment Loan Scheme is a service we provide to all registered
blind or partially sighted people living in the Southend, Rayleigh,
Rochford and Castle Point area. The loan scheme enables you to
try one of the larger pieces of equipment at home on a trial basis.
In this way you are able to see whether the equipment will be useful
for you, before you consider buying your own.
The service is free of charge but in order to be considered for the
scheme, we ask that you visit the Equipment and Information Centre
and try the different equipment first.
You can find the Equipment and Information Centre in the SAVS Centre,
(Southend Association of Voluntary Services) Alexandra Street, Southend.
