Equipment/Volunteers for Ballymena clinic

Those working in the homeless sector in Ballymena are keen to have an eye clinic set up for homeless and vulnerable people in the Ballymena area. This is the first step in setting up a wider ranging health clinic and the hope is to to open during Homeless Awareness Week in November.

We at SeeBelfast are fully supportive of this venture, and would like to again request the help of the generous optometrists of Northern Ireland!

They are in need of:

  • Equipment. All kinds of optometric equipment are needed, so if you have anything at all you would like to donate please let us know at
  • Volunteers. The clinic is likely to happen once a month in an evening session. Optometrists and support staff will be needed. Please contact Mark at

Thank you!
