Networking – You could help by recommending us to contacts or let us know about potential sponsors, helping us to grow our vital support network. We also run events where different companies come together, which makes for an invaluable networking experience.
Donating – We support people and their families all across the North of England and show people that they are not alone. Last year, we supported over 6000 people in just Manchester alone – but we rely on your donations to do this. Donations to charities are not taxed.

Have your own idea?
We’d love to hear it! Please email Lisa or ring her on 01423 814385 to discuss how you and your business could support Henshaws and make a real difference to local people living with sight loss and a range of other disabilities.
“Ten years ago, I was diagnosed with Macular dystrophy; a rare, genetic eye disorder that causes vision loss. It was a huge shock to me and my confidence was severely knocked, I also lost a lot of my independence as a result.
I joined Henshaws in June 2014 -I was nervous initially but was made to feel very welcome by the team. My biggest achievement to date has to be conquering my fear of water and paddling in a canoe boat – something I never thought I’d do even before my sight loss! I’ve met so many wonderful and supportive new friends through Henshaws and feel like a completely different person. I’ve conquered not only my fear of water but also a fear of being defined by visual impairment. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store.”
