COVID-19 Update WESC Foundation

5 January 2021

Our work continues

Young people with complex needs and visual impairment often face barriers to learning, living and taking an active, independent place in society. Our charity (including the special school and specialist FE college) remains open, and will continue to provide the specialist expertise, equipment and adapted facilities to inspire, challenge and empower them to live their best lives.

All of WESC Foundation’s services for children and young adults with visual impairment and complex needs will continue to operate. This includes the school, college, adult day services, St David’s House and supported living accommodation. Only essential visitors to the site are permitted.

Charity shops and online shopping

Our charity shops are now temporarily closed. You can still shop online or make a donation to support our work with blind and partially sighted children and young adults.

You can still shop online using our eBay store.

How you can help

People who are blind or partially sighted need additional help during the time of COVID-19.

Children with additional, complex needs often need extra, specialist support throughout the day. New national restrictions or lockdowns do not change this, and our team of carers, teachers, nurses, therapists and other professionals will continue to work throughout November.

Your donation could give the gift of a brighter future to these inspirational children and young adults – and their families – and allow us to continue to meet their needs throughout lockdown.

Please consider making a gift to WESC Foundation.
