Established in 2009, Carnoustie Social-Eyes is the only independent social group for Blind or partially sighted people in Angus. The members, who all have a visual impairment, exclusively run Social-Eyes. The group meet on the first Tuesday of every month in Carnoustie.
Members have the opportunity to chat over coffee and biscuits in a relaxed, informal and empathetic way.
Members also enjoy regular talks given by guest speakers, quizzes, and tactile board games. Highlights of the year are the summer and Christmas lunches, and a visit to the local pantomime.
The cost is £1 per month.
New members are always welcome.
If you, or someone you know has a visual impairment, and are interested in joining Carnoustie Social-Eyes, please contact the Secretary, Margaret Morrison on 01241 854936, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the group website at http://www.social-eyes.scot/ or follow us on Facebook.
The Connections Suite offers a range of materials to support those with additional needs or sensory impairments. This includes Makaton and British Sign Language materials as well as information and resources to support reminiscence sessions and activities.
