Vision Care for Homeless People (VCHP) has started to reopen its clinics after receiving support in order to provide eye care again to vulnerable people in the UK.

The charity has established Covid-19 measures, received a donation of personal protective equipment from Essilor with financial backing provided by Stepper Eyewear UK.

Daljit Bhandari, the optometrist who opened the first post-lockdown clinic for VCHP at the Broadway Centre in London, said: β€˜It is very rewarding to help these patients – many have mental health problems and plenty have had good jobs in the past and now found themselves homeless.’
