Henshaws is a specialist charity providing expert support, advice and training to anyone affected by sight loss. They also work with people with other disabilities, and because sight loss and disability affects family, friends and colleagues, they work with them too. Henshaws is one of the oldest charities in the UK, opening in Manchester in 1837. Throughout their more than 170 years of history they’ve built a reputation for trust and expertise. Their services support children and babies, their families, young and older people by providing reassurance, practical support and in some cases simply companionship. They help hundreds of visually impaired and disabled people each year to develop the skills and independence they need to lead lives that are as full and independent as possible.

Henshaws work throughout the North of England, with centres and communities in Harrogate, Knaresborough, Manchester, Merseyside and Newcastle. They also have an Arts & Crafts Centre and specialist college, a unique further education college for students aged 16-24. Each of their centres offers different services and programmes - but they all have a common goal: to enable the people who use our services to live an independent and fulfilling life.

Henshaws is a registered charity, Number 221888
