Employment - whether you are in work or looking for work, we can help. 

Sight Support runs a modular course called The Moving Forward series, which is designed to offer help to people who are adjusting to life with sight loss. Each session will provide practical advice and a chance to learn from other’s personal experiences.  We run a specific module on Employment, if you would like to join please contact Sight Support to register at [email protected].

We have created some guides (below) to help you get started, each has some useful resources and contact details if you think you need further support.
