Our Charity Values

These are the five values the charity adheres to:


We are committed to pursuing the highest possible standards at every level of the charity. We have the expertise, experience and knowledge to offer a professional yet personal and caring approach.


We are committed to an inclusive, positive environment in which clients, volunteers, employees and trustees may experience a sense of belonging, respect and worth.


We are committed to encouraging, motivating and inspiring everyone to enable them to reach their full potential and demonstrate that sight loss need not signify the end of or be a barrier to independence, capacity and worth.


We aim to make a difference in the lives of those we support by putting their needs at the heart of everything we do. We support, trust and empower our clients, volunteers, employees and trustees to further the shared mission of Southend in Sight.


We are honest, reliable, loyal and transparent in the way we deliver our services.
