Coronavirus update: We are still here for you during lockdown

Updated: Jan 5

We are still here for you

UPDATED - January 4th: Even though we are in a third national lockdown, it changes very little, as we are still here for you.

We want to reassure you that your welfare is our priority and we will still continue our support, via telephone calls, group telephone activities and online Zoom sessions. If you require further support please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Our vital ECLO service at Preston, Chorley and Lancaster hospitals will continue, pending further guidance from Lancashire Teaching Hospitals and the Morecambe Bay Trust.

Following the government’s guidance, we have temporarily closed our Brew Me Sunshine cafe in Morecambe. We understand how valued the cafe is within our community and we truly appreciate your support whilst we have been open over the past couple of months. We look forward to seeing you when we can.

We understand this may be a worrying time for some, but we want you to know that we are still here for you.

You can call our Penwortham head office on 01772 744148 and you will be put through to one of our sight loss advisors.

You can also contact us online through our Facebook pages. Each centre now has its own Facebook group which we invite people to join to get the latest information about our services and support.

You can also visit our dedicated Coronavirus page:

We will continue to monitor current Government guidance and will keep you informed by phone, email and social media.

Take care and please stay safe.
