Home Visiting Service

The home visiting scheme offers people with visual impairment assistance with;

  • Reading
  • Escorting to shops, appointments etc.
  • Personal correspondence
  • Or just to have a regular visit

Home visitors are volunteers who are trained and managed by MertonVision and undertake small tasks for people who are visually impaired in the borough of Merton. This service is particularly for those who live alone or who are housebound.

You can make a request for a volunteer by contacting Carmel Sammons the Volunteer Co-ordinator, who will visit you to discuss your needs.

As soon as a volunteer becomes available you will be introduced to them at a mutually convenient time. If you know someone who could benefit from this service please contact us.
