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.
