      Being sight loss friendly is a state of mind

      Torch Trust can help your church to become more aware of how to support people with sight loss. We can help you become more accessible and more able to confidently engage everyone in your church, and those who would like to join.

      Jesus is for everyone

      Everyone has the right to a fulfilling spiritual life, but feeling left out or unable to join in at church often means that people stop attending altogether. They then miss out not just on regular services, but social activities, a sense of community and a feeling of human connection. Churches may not realise that anyone in their congregation or local community has sight loss, and if they do they may not know how to provide support. Sight Loss Friendly Church is here to help.
