        Supporting someone with sight loss

        Some people like to receive services from us but like someone else to contact us and manage the services they receive on their behalf (e.g. like ordering library books). If you would like to support someone in this way, please fill in the details and one of our team will complete your registration as a client supporter. The person you are supporting may be an existing client or they may like to become a client of Torch. Please make sure that the person that you are supporting knows that you will be doing this on their behalf and that you will be passing on their details to us. If you would like us to contact the client directly then please fill in the Client sign-up form and specify in the Other field that you have filled it in on behalf of the client.
