Barnet Borough Sight Impaired – Who are we?

We are your local voluntary organisation for people who are blind, partially sighted or experiencing problems with their sight.

Our aims are:
  • To promote the welfare of blind and partially sighted people living in the London Borough of Barnet.
  • To offer friendship, help and support to those with sight difficulties, especially those who have been recently diagnosed.
  • To educate the public about the needs and aspirations of the visually impaired by lobbying government and other health providers.

We are one of the organisations participationg in Barnet Vision Strategy. Their latest report can be found in our Newsletter Page

Social Meetings

Meet other visually impaired people, have a chat, cup of tea, listen to an informative talk, and enjoy social activities. We hope you will come along and join us on the first Tuesday of the month at St Mary’s Church Hall, Hendon Lane N3, from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.


We hold at least two outings a year. 2019's Summer Outing was to Myddelton House Gardens where we stopped for a guided tour and for lunch, followed by a two hour cruise on the River Lea with a Cream Tea. Previous outings have included visits to Knebworth, Henry Moore Foundation, Bletchley Park and a Narrow Boat trip down the Grand Union Canal.
