We firmly believe that people living with sight loss should have the same opportunities as sighted people. We think everybody affected by sight loss should be able to continue to do the same things before vision became a problem. Sadly, we know this isn’t always the case. 

This is why we campaign locally to make positive changes for blind and partially sighted people. We work to remove the barriers locally that cause feelings of isolation and lack inclusion. We work to make sure local communities understand sight loss, how it can be prevented and the challenges it can bring creating a more inclusive society.

Visual Awareness Training

Would you or your organisation like to understand the needs of people living with sight loss better? Would you like greater awareness of some of the issues visually impaired people face? Our Visual Awareness Training course offers an excellent insight into how organisations and individuals can accommodate the needs of people living with sight loss. Our tailored courses can address any training needs you might have and help you to improve accessibility across your organisation.


Many organisations have already benefitted from our Visual Awareness Training including Lancashire Police and Lancashire County Council as well as many local residential and care homes. This course is suitable for a wide range of settings including workplaces, schools, shops, social groups and many more. To find out more or to discuss your training needs, get in touch
