Rehabilitation for Visual Impairment

This is a statutory service provided by Livewell Southwest, commissioned by Plymouth City Council.

The Rehabilitation Officers for Adults with a Visual Impairment (ROVI’s) assess the needs of people with reduced or loss of functional vision in areas such as orientation and mobility and daily living tasks in order to maximise their independence.

All people who are registered as sight impaired/severely sight impaired are offered an assessment under the Care Act (2014).

You do not have to be registered to have an assessment.

People can self refer or be referred from Statutory or voluntary organisations. They do not have to be referred via their GP.
