EYECAN – 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.
EYECAN is one of the Island’s oldest charities. Formerly known as the Jersey Blind Society, we were established in 1886. Our name has changed to EYECAN to reinforce that we are here to support people at all stages of sight loss. Anyone with a sight impairment can access the support given by EYECAN.
“It is our aim to support people with a sight impairment to live and work as independently as possible and to enjoy life to the full” – Conrad Coutanche, President
