A UK charity that helps homeless people access free eye care has been supported once again with much needed supplies and medicines, thanks to Three-Sixty, one of the UK’s leading suppliers and wholesalers of eye care and eye wear products.

Vision Care for Homeless People have been supported by Three-Sixty previously, having received donated supplies for its new centre in Leeds during the summer.

Testing_smallThe charity’s clinics in London, Birmingham and Manchester have now received additional supplies from Three-Sixty, to support their mission to ensure those less fortunate have access to eye tests and treatment where necessary.

The charity has a network of clinics run by volunteer optometrists and support workers, in cities such as London, Birmingham, Manchester, Brighton and Exeter.

“Vision Care for Homeless People provide a vital service to those who are unlikely to obtain professional eye tests or treatment within opticians’ practices,” said Owen Joynt, Quality Assurance Manager at Three-Sixty based in Newtown, Powys.

“We’re very much aware of those who are less fortunate than ourselves, and we understand how important eyesight and the need for regular tests are for them, regardless of their circumstances.

“We’ve supplied a range of products and medicines to Vision Care for Homeless People that can help the professional volunteers test and treat homeless people, ensuring they receive the right care and attention.”

The supplies were sent by Three-Sixty to the charity’s clinics free of charge, as part of its next day delivery service.

“The donation from Three-Sixty will once again help to ensure we have enough supplies and medicines to help homeless people who come to us for help with their eyesight,” said Will Pearce, Administration Officer at Vision Care for Homeless People.

“With the dedication of the team of volunteer opticians and professional staff who give up their valuable time to undertake free tests and assessments at our centres, along with donations such as this, we’re able to undertake a much needed service for a vulnerable part of our society.”
