SeeAbility provides extraordinary support and champions better eye care for people with learning disabilities and autism, many of whom have sight loss. We encourage people with disabilities to challenge what they expect from life, from themselves and from wider society. The people we support overcome huge barriers to achieve exciting new things every day: some big, some small, all extraordinary.

At SeeAbility we don't underestimate people and we won't underestimate you. Find out what it's like to work here and how we'll support, develop and reward you below.

Our Culture

SeeAbility is a well established and diverse charity with a rich heritage of innovation and specialist services. Our dedicated and passionate team support over 250 people with learning disabilities and autism, many of whom have sight loss, to live extraordinary lives.

We're proud of what we've achieved and want to continue to encourage people with disabilities to challenge what they expect from life, from themselves and from wider society.

We also challenge and encourage our staff. We want to see you develop and grow, so we offer real opportunities – which are fulfilling, challenging and fun – to reach your full potential.

The amount of training given is fantastic, and the support for personal growth cannot be faulted

We want you to be yourself and bring your own personality and strengths so that you can contribute your ideas, enthusiasm and passion to our vision and goals and, most importantly, improve the lives of the people we support.

It's a small organisation with a close-knit, family feeling to it, which I really like

We're a team. Some might even say a family! And like all families sometimes we disagree but at the end of the day we have each others back. We support and listen to each other and together we change lives everyday.

We have a great team who work well together and support each other
