To help anyone newly diagnosed with sight loss, we have developed a series of talks aimed at introducing the range of equipment, support services and advice available to help address the challenges of losing sight. These sessions are aimed at people who are blind, partially sighted or the family and friends of those who are.

The 6 sessions will take place via Zoom video and will cover a range of topics relating to many aspects of being blind or partially sighted. Each session will last 1 hour and be fully interactive.

You can attend one or all of the session, just pick what seems interesting or useful to you.
