SAMS is a local V.i. friendship group, based in Sutton Coldfield and the surrounding areas of Birmingham and the black country. It was formed to be a friendly and supportive space for anyone with a visual impairment. SAMS members work together to offer support and advise on technology, independence and other aspects of sightloss, as well as building social links through regular activities including pub nights, bowling, outdoor walks and shopping trips to name a few. It was created with passion and heart, and it's key aim is to ensure that all members feel welcome and valued.
