Beacon was established in 1875 with its charitable aim “To promote the relief of visually impaired persons”. For almost 150 years we have supported thousands of visually impaired people and their families adapt to sight loss and live as independently as practicable within their homes and communities.
As part of our Ambition 2025 strategy we are embarked upon a substantial transformation of our services, with significant opportunities to enhance and expand our reach to meet the ever growing demand for sight loss support.
As this transformation develops alongside broader developments within the sight loss sector, we need to ensure that our cross cutting corporate services evolve to provide the appropriate support and that we effectively track and report performance to reassure investors and enable additional resources to enhance on-going developments.
Our operational services include site based support at Sedgley and Stourbridge, coupled across the Black Country and Staffordshire with supported employment programmes, community based activity and sports initiatives, and mobile sight loss advice.
