I recently started a new job at Kettering Mind. I’ve always been interested in mental health and this was a great opportunity to do something positive with local people suffering the debilitating affects mental heath issues.

One of the clients I care for has sight problems. She needed to visit The Sight Centre located in Kettering’s Wadcroft Cap Park. I’d never visited this place before.

I’ve been really impressed with the services offered by The Sight Centre. It falls under the umbrella of Northamptonshire Association for the Blind (nab) and sells things to help people with Sight problems as well as offers activities to help the users as well as provide a social network. Today my client attended a seated yoga class which she really enjoyed.

I think this little gem is a well kept secret in Kettering and I wanted to write this blog to try to increase awareness about the Centre and encourage people to both come along and to participate in the activities.

If you’d like to contact The Sight Centre, their telephone number is 01536 522773 and their e-mail address is sightcentre@nab.org.uk.
