our team

Sight Support Worthing is made up of a friendly team based at the Centre and our  governing board of trustees – some of whom also volunteer for us!

We are also supported by an amazing band of Sight Supporters who do everything from driving our minibus to sorting out our resources.


Our dedicated trustees oversee the aims of Sight Support Worthing. Barry Ward is our Chairman. Alongside him are Brian Butcher, Cherry Ward, Dee Darters, Neil Clarke, Adil Siganporia and Dawn O’Donnell. Our President is Bob Smytherman
