A huge thank you to all our funders past and present. These include the following organisations and source of funding.

- seconded staff – Development Officer and Business Support Officer
- funding in kind that helps us to operate on a day-to-day basis – accommodation at a peppercorn rent, use of phone and internet, stationery
- additional Town Team grant support for specific projects.
Big Lottery Awards for All – funds our part-time Enablement Outreach Worker.
Comic Relief Core Strengths grant – funds our part-time Information and Support Worker
Many thanks too to our volunteers who freely give their time to support SVI and who enable us to offer such wide and varied services to visually impaired people.
Active 60 Group activities are self-funded by members’ contributions, raffles and the money raised from a Winter Bazaar which is open to all.
