Welcome to the Resource Centre!

Coventry Resource Centre for the Blind is a registered charity that provides practical and social support for people with a visual impairment in the Coventry area, and their families and carers.

We offer a wide range of activities including social, music, allotment, art and craft clubs as well as training sessions in computers, smartphones and tablets, cooking and sign language. We also provide hands-on access to products and technology designed to make living with a visual impairment a little easier. 

And it’s easy to get here, too, with our door-to-door minibus service. Find out about all our services in these pages. Above all we guarantee a warm welcome in a safe environment.

"I don't know where I'd be without the Resource Centre. They've been so helpful. It's really helped me along."
