Technology & IT

Here at East Cheshire Eye Society we are developing our services to help blind and partially sighted people to use technology and the internet.

Please do contact us to find out how we can help with your specific needs and technological challenges.

Below is an overview of our current IT and Technology services:

Introduction to Technology:

Delivered by a specialist trainer this is a 2 hour taster session introducing you to the world of iPads, tablets, phones and computers as a visually impaired user.  These sessions are held in a central Macclesfield location and places can be booked on 01625 422 602 or email

Assistive Technology Advice Appointments:

We host an appointment based system at the Resource Centre for one-to-one sessions with an expert in ‘assistive technology’.  In these one hour appointments you are able to discuss all kinds of electronic magnification devices and other helpful gadgets, and see first hand how technology might help you with reading or daily living.

Appointments are available monthly and can be booked on 01625 422 602 or email

Home IT Support:

Our IT Support volunteers can visit you at home to have a look at any problems you are having, or to help you develop IT systems that will work for your level of vision.  Please contact us to speak to us about how best we can help your situation!
