Our New Name

We have now changed our name from Shropshire RCC to Community Resource.

Sight Loss Support

Community Resource supports people all over the county with a variety of sight loss conditions. People with sight loss can still do most of what other people can, just in a different way. We’re here to make sure you don’t lose your confidence and to help you meet and make new friends.

Sight Loss Supportmore

We provide information and support for people with sight loss living in Shropshire as well as facilitating four Sight Loss Opportunity Groups (or 'SLOG's!) in Shropshire. The SLOG groups offer all kinds of interesting and adventurous activities to encourage people who have sight loss to keep active, stay confident, meet and make new friends and have some fun.

Location: The Hall of United Reformed Church, Coleham Head, SY3 7BJ
Date and time: 2-4pm on the fourth Monday of the month

Location: The Qube, Oswald Road, Oswestry, SY11 1RB.
Date and time: 10:30 am to 12:30 on the first Wednesday of the month

Location: Ludlow Library, 7 Parkway, Ludlow, SY8 2PG.
Date and time: 10:30 – 12:30 on the third Monday of the month

Cycling & other activities, Sundorne Sports Village - 10.30am -11.30pm on the third Wednesday of the month 

A cycle coach is on hand and we have access to a number of adapted bikes as well as Tandems, Tricycles, and two wheel bicycles so there is a bike for everyone. In the winter we often do crown green bowling at the same location, rather than cycling!

For more information on any of the groups contact 01743 342168 or email shls@community-resource.org.uk

What groups domore

Groups have a varied and interesting programme throughout the year This includes

  • Speakers who can offer useful information relating to sight loss such as equipment, services and products that can make life easier
  • Talks and demonstrations from interesting and inspiring speakers - most recently the library service and the Fairtrade foundation.
  • Outings to places of interest such as the British Ironworks and a Canal trip both planned for the next few months.
