Many of our services are provided free of charge. There will be a charge for some items and equipment from the Resource Centre, but for expensive items with people on low income, there may be opportunities for grants.
If people need guidance with benefits claims related to their sight loss we can provide some support.
Any person resident in the administrative district council areas of North Kesteven, South Kesteven, Boston Borough and South Holland can make use of our services and anyone can contact SLBS for support.
With our inclusive society, we Service Providers want to ensure that all of our customers, clients and service users get the support they need and not to come across barriers, whether it is information, environmental or poor customer service. This not only may break the Disablity Discrimination Act 1995, but may mean they will be dissatisfied with your service and take their custom elsewhere. Many of the barriers are caused by lack of knowledge and not through malice, but with advice, training and our Transcription Service, SLBS provides support to companies so they overcome this problem.
