Birdies for Charity Partners

Vision Bermuda

Through the delivery of vision rehabilitation, Vision Bermuda helps to maintain or restore functional ability and improve the quality of life and independence in an individual who has lost visual function through illness or injury. Our goal is to give blind and partially sighted people, and those that care about sight loss, the tools they need to live the life they want to lead. We help individuals understand and come to terms with their diagnosis, discuss how to plan for their future, teach how to adapt to be able to complete everyday tasks, how to make use of specialised equipment and technology and to keep themselves safe and as independent as possible. For individuals with low vision, the vision rehabilitation focuses on using any remaining vision as effectively as possible.

Raleigh International Bermuda

By helping them to see that they are stronger than they thought possible, they are able to realise their full potential and effectively manage the ‘day-to-day’ risks they face including drugs, alcohol, gang membership, crime, bullying, loss of motivation, low self-esteem, and lack of self-confidence.
