Peterborough Sight

Peterborough Sight 

About us 

Peterborough Association for the Blind (PAB) was formed in 1970 to enrich the lives of people with sight loss by providing services, amenities, and social help to people who are blind and visually impaired in Peterborough.

In 2020 PAB registered with the Charity Commission as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation and changed its name to Peterborough Sight. It’s objectives and mission remained the same.

Today Peterborough Sight is no longer a Charitable Incorporated Organisation but is a friendly peer support group for people in the local area who have significant sight loss.

We have opportunities to meet, talk and join in with activities like walking, swimming or even craftwork or sailing. We can also put you in touch with professional organisations who can support you further. By being there for each other you don’t have to be alone and our sight loss journeys become easier.
