The Wilberforce Trust is committed to supporting people in York and North Yorkshire with sight and hearing loss to help them remain as independent as possible for as long as possible and to enjoy quality of life. We do this through supported housing, our YorSensory Service, Low Vision Clinic, Visual Awareness Training and activities in the Living and Learning Zone.
We are a not for profit organization and registered charity that relies on donations and fundraising to help us to achieve our aims.
Our vision is to see a world in which all people with sight and hearing loss, including those with other disabilities, are truly integrated in society with equal opportunities in all aspects of life, and to know that our passion and commitment have been influential in bringing this about.
Our mission is to be a leading provider of high quality support, training and care services, and to create opportunities, for people with sight and hearing loss, including those with other disabilities; to encourage and facilitate the development of these on a local, regional and national basis by being a model of good practice. Our aim is to do this in a way which enhances the quality of life of those we work with.
