Counsellors with vision for helping the blind in need

INSIGHT Counselling Service offers counselling and therapy to people who are losing or have lost their sight through illness or injury.

The service, based in South Great Georges Street and part of the charity Fighting Blindness, was granted €1,000.

"A number of years ago the charity recognised the need to provide counselling for people who were diagnosed with a blinding condition and for the parents of children diagnosed," staff member Ann Cooke said.

"We've been established for 10 years. It's a wonderful service and very much needed."
