We've moved!

We are pleased to announce that we have moved to our new offices in West Bromwich Town Hall.

Our new postal address is SVI, West Bromwich Town Hall, Lodge Road, West Bromwich B70 8DY.

Our ofices are more centrally located, being a short walk from bus stops, near to the Lodge Road Metro Station and with easy access for Ring and Ride and taxies to drop off. SVI has its own entrance from Lodge Road, at the side of the Town Hall. Just follow the tactile paving and the yellow handrail to our own automatic doors, where you will find an intercom on the left at around chest height, press the button and we will let you in. We don't have proper signage yet but soon everyone will know we are there.

Our phone number is the same as before 0121 525 4810.

Our new premises are larger than our small office at the Deaf Centre and we also have use of other rooms in the Town Hall, so plenty of space to organise more activities and services for blind and visually impaired people - we will tell you more in the weeks to come.

It would be best if people contact us before visiting as we are still short of staff and wouldn't want anyone to turn up and find we weren't at the office. Once everything is set up we plan to have more volunteers so the office should be staffed and open for longer.

We are very much looking forward to working from our new offices. It's a great development opportunity and we aim to recruit more volunteers and expand the services that we offer to our members.

We are sharing the premises with Sandwell's Disability Day Opportunities service and we are excited about working more closely with them.
