Don’t let sight loss be a barrier to trying new things, going to new places and making new friends.
Visually impaired, a family member, friend or helper of a person living with sight loss and want to do more adventurous or social activities? Our SocialEyes Group is for adults of any age.
Members have previously enjoyed a guided tour of Haden Hill House museum, a night at the races, coach trip to Clarks Shopping Village and a Christmas afternoon tea in Birmingham. SocialEyes wants to try new things, so all ideas are welcome.
Contact the SVI office to find out more about the SocialEyes group. Or have a look at our events calendar and/or check out SVI’s Facebook page and Group to find out what we have planned.
Over 50 and want to do more activities to keep you active for longer? Statistics show that people who are active in body and mind as they approach their 60s stay healthier and happier for longer. SVI’s Active 60 group meet once monthly to either go out for a meal or trip or meet at the SVI base for a chat and other fun things like quizzes, themed events and more.
Active 60 members pay for their trips and events which are subsidised from SVI A60 funds.
Contact the SVI office to find out more. Or have a look at our events calendar and/or check out SVI’s Facebook page and Group to get details of forthcoming activities.
A monthly meet up for SVI’s women members to chat, learn from each other and listen to guest speakers who will give them information and support on women’s health and wellbeing.
Previously women have taken part in a shopping trip followed by a meal at the Harvester, along with demonstrations from Avon cosmetics and Essen’s perfumes.
The Women’s Group usually meets the first Monday evening of each month from 5pm to 7.30pm. Some of our meetings are virtual and some are in person. In-person meetings are usually at our base at West Bromwich Town Hall.
Note: for special trips and events, such as afternoon tea, dates and times are likely to change and fees are made for some activities and pamper treatments.
The Women’s Group was first set up with a Healthy Sandwell Micro Grant.
