Are you a carer/family member or professional living/working with someone with a visually impairment?

If so, this one-day course will give you more of an understanding of what it is like to live with sight loss and how to guide and support someone with a visual impairment.

This is a full day course which will incorporate information on the main causes of visual impairment with practical tasks whilst wearing simulator spectacles and sighted guide training facilitated by our own Low Vision Therapist.

To keep costs down only light refreshments are provided, but delegates are welcome to bring their own lunch or can order from a local sandwich shop.

If you are an owner/manager/staff member of a private care home/homecare provider this training could initially be just right for you.  LO4S is an initiative to raise awareness of the impact of sigh loss, for residents who receive care from care workers and other healthcare.  It has been developed by Wiltshire Sight and Thomas Pocklington Trust and two of the PSS staff members have undertaken the course and we will soon be sending out full details.  If you would like to know more, call Michaela Etherington or Marcus Charles on 01302 965195

Private training sessions for your organisation

We can also facilitate courses for your staff on dates to suit you and in your own venue if required.  For bookings within a three-mile radius of our venue no travel expenses are incurred.  Please call for details.
