This session will be held here in the meeting room at the Parkside Centre, from 10.30am until 2pm on Monday 30th September.

Charles Bonnet Syndrome is a common condition among people with low vision and causes them to see things that aren’t there (visual hallucinations). This can be very distressing for the person and their family, so this is an opportunity to come along and get information, help and support if you or someone you care about is affected.

To help us plan refreshments and the structure of the session, please contact the office on 01924 215555 to let us know you are planning to attend, and how many people you are bringing with you. Everyone is welcome.

As part of the event, we are pleased to welcome our friends from Turning Point Talking Therapies, who will be running a session on mindfulness techniques that can help manage the condition. The mindfulness session will run from 12.30 until 2pm, and places will be limited so please let us know when confirming your attendance if you would also like a place on the mindfulness session.

We are pleased to offer this support event free of charge, although donations towards the cost of room hire and refreshments are of course very welcome on the day. Please note that although hot drinks and biscuits will be provided, we are sadly not able to provide lunch, so please feel free to bring sandwiches or snacks with you if staying for the mindfulness session as well.
