Do you want expert advice and help, or try out equipment that might help? That's what these centres offer.
It can be difficult to know what help you can get, or what equipment might help you. Although there is good advice on websites, you might prefer to talk to someone in person and try equipment. This is what sight and hearing centres provide.
In Bournemouth and Poole, the sight and hearing centres are provided by local charities. As well as providing advice, they have equipment for sale.
No appointment is needed; just drop in for a chat about your needs, get advice and try out equipment.
