The Wilberforce Trust

As York's oldest charity we are proud to support people with sight loss and hearing loss, plus additional disabilities across York and the surrounding area. We do this through our range of community services and by supporting the tenants to live as independently and fully as possible. 

Our mission is to be a leading provider of high quality support, training and care services, and to create opportunities, for people with sight loss, including those with other disabilities; to encourage and facilitate the development of these on a local, regional and national basis by being a model of good practice. Our aim is to do this in a way which enhances the quality of life of those we work with.
