About our

Self-help organization

We are a self-help organization for the blind and partially sighted. Being personally acquainted with the difficulties of this disability, we can use our experience to form the basis for our group activities. Our aim is to help those concerned to be able to come to terms with their impairment by making life as easy as possible. Bearing this in mind, we arrange the various events according to their personal wishes.

We advise on and inform about:

Our activities are financed by the regional government as well as by donations. Please, help us too! Thank you.

Early Intervention

We support and counsel children who are blind, partially blind or who have a multiple disability and their families. Should any eye impairment or blindness be suspected or diagnosed in a baby, you can contact us even in the first weeks after birth. Our work is done in the child's own environment home. Early pedagogical support cannot remove any eye disability but the child can be given visual experiences which can be related to his/her specific actions.

Rehabilitation Centre for Outpatients

Blindness or any kind of visual disability restricts the possible independent movements of the person concerned to a great extent. In the same way, the various actions performed when keeping house, cooking, eating, reading and writing can cause difficulties.
