CEO: Statement

Unfortunately, due to the recent corona virus outbreak we have reluctantly closed the Vision Support Centre in Barrow and ceased home visiting by the Vision Support Team.

If you need to talk to someone urgently please ring 01229 440556 and we will endeavour to provide telephone support to you.

Alongside this we will continue to provide a telephone befriending service, so if you would like a friendly chat please call 01229 440556 to be included in this.

We hope you all stay well and services resume as soon as possible.
