Social Groups

We hold frequent social groups in Macclesfield, Congleton, Poynton and Wilmslow that facilitate people with sight loss to meet and spend time together, whilst undertaking a range of social activities. They also offer people the chance to share experiences, knowledge and advice, and inform MES of their views and needs.

Please refer to our What’s On page for all the dates of our future Social Groups and events.
