Galloway's and Optelec Community Information Days

Knowing which products are best for you can be daunting, especially when technology’s involved. Galloway’s has teamed up with Optelec, a leading manufacturer of electronic magnifiers, braille and text-to-speech readers for over 40 years, to bring you Vision Zone 2023 Community Information Days.

The aim of the information days is to give you support, information and the skills to build your confidence in navigating technology in a relaxed and informative environment.

Galloway’s learning skills and lifestyle manager, Andrew Coleman said “Post pandemic, it’s great to be getting back out into the community, providing people with essential information about services and opportunities in their local area.”

Vision Zone prides itself on its ‘consumer lifestyle events for anyone affected by sight loss.’ At the community information days, there’ll be a range of products and services that enable and support visually impaired people to do the things they enjoy, whilst remaining independent and active.

Sarah Kitson of Optelec said “We couldn’t be happier to be working in conjunction with Galloway’s, getting out into the local communities, spreading the knowledge of their support and our assistive technology alongside other services”

Come to one of the events near you and gain hands-on experience in new technologies in a relaxed and accessible space. We look forward to welcoming you!
