Jersey’s only sight impairment charity
EYECAN is Jersey’s only charity focused solely on supporting Islanders with sight impairment.
We work closely with all age groups, from infants through to the elderly, enabling people with a sight impairment and their families to benefit from social events, activities and tailored support.
It is this partnership approach that ensures those affected by sight impairment are empowered to live more independently with their sight loss.
You may well have known us by the name of Jersey Blind Society, we were established in 1886 and rebranded in 2015 to EYECAN. This change to EYECAN reinforces our mission that we are here to support people at all stages of sight loss. Anyone with a registered sight impairment can access our full range of support.
“Since 1886 our basic aims have remained unchanged, however with a modern, professional service we are now able to assist many more sight impaired islanders to live, work and enjoy life in a more independent way.” – Jane Crill, President
