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.
“Over the last few years we have substantially increased the number of professional staff that support the community. Our aim is to reach out to as many people with visual impairment as possible to help them live an independent life at home and at work.” – Anthea Bentley, President
