  • Welcome to Worthing Society for the Blind we provide support and education for people living with Vision Impairment in the Borough of Worthing. The society relies solely on voluntary donations and receives no local and national government funding.

    With your help and support we can continue to provide vital services that will enable people with Vision Impairment to live fulfilling independent lives.


    We need your Plastic Milk Bottle Tops

    Washed milk bottle tops are now being collected by Worthing Society for the Blind as part of a charity recycling scheme. 

    This scheme will only accept the plastic tops from the plastic milk containers - 1, 2, 4 or even 8 pint tops are all fine, semi-skimmed, full fat or any other type and colour are all acceptable but they must be washed!  Please save them up and ask your families/friends to do the same as we need quite a lot before we can benefit from the scheme! 


     Mobile Phone & Printer Cartridge Recycling  

    Donate your old or unwanted mobile phones or Lexmark, Canon or HP printer cartridges to help raise funds for us.  

    Please ask your family members, friends and colleagues if they have any of the above items to donate.

    (phones are acceptable no matter what the age or condition)  

    Just drop them into us at WSftB, 48 Rowlands Road, Worthing.  

    We'd be more than grateful!


    The  Society has published a book!  Written by one of our Trustees (Keith Humphreys) the book covers the Society's first 100 years including specific reference to the experiences of our first member.

    Anybody wishing to order a copy of the book (priced at £5) should notify the Office.  Please tell the Office if you would like a talking book version and we will investigate the options!

    Please note that if you require a copy of the book to be posted to you, there will be an additional charge of £2.00 for the postage & packing.

    Volunteers 

    We always need volunteer drivers for our minibus.  Experience of larger vehicles is an advantage but by no means a necessity, so if you have a few hours to spare ’every once in a while’ or if you’d like to volunteer as a home visitor or to help at clubs and classes, please give us a call.

    Shop and Donate  

    Did you know you can shop online with major High Street retailers and they will make a donation to us!  Just go to www.easyfundraising.org.uk or www.everyclick.com/wsftb to find out more and to register

  • Doris (85) - Society member since 2002

    When I lost my husband I decided I had to become more involved with the Society and started attending different clubs and classes. It got me through the darkest of days, especially the regular visits by one of the charity’s visiting service volunteers.

    I volunteered with WSB for well over a year before I moved away to university. I did home visiting and I really enjoyed helping at craft classes. There was always a friendly atmosphere and we had loads of fun!
