Client-Centric Activities

Our activities are specially curated to make the experience rich and interesting for people with vision loss. If you are looking to increase your activity level, or know someone who may benefit from these activities, contact us.

GDS organises social events and skill-based workshops regularly for our clients. It gives them an avenue to make new friends, form communities of similar interests, and support one another through learning and social interaction. Such activities also encourage our clients to practice their mobility and independent living skills out of their homes, ultimately increasing their confidence and improving their skills through positive experiences.

Here are some of the activities we’ve held over the years with our community partners:
