Business Profile

Beacon Opticians Plus + Based in central Wolverhampton, Beacon Centre for the Blind is a charity dedicated to helping local people with sight loss live a fuller more independent life by providing the finest facilities and support.

Newly launched, the trading arm of the long established charity now offers the first social enterprise ophthalmic opticians, Beacon Opticians Plus.

The opening will coincide with the charity's 140th birthday and will take place on Friday October 9th. The opticians will work in tandem with the already existing sight awareness training, Active eyes scheme, and Independent Living Centre.

Its purpose was to visit blind people in the area and to give them an opportunity to learn to read by deciphering embossed type.

With this in mind, in addition to the facilities available at Beacon, the charity is reaching out to the local community. They now have the 'Beacon Bus' - mobile low vision service that which started running in 2015.
