We are building on success
London Vision has an excellent track record of providing information and support to blind and partially sighted people throughout the pandemic via Zoom and the telephone.
More than three hundred blind and partially sighted people, along with sight loss professionals, have engaged with and requested support and information from London Vision. The main source of information has been the Managing Sight Loss course.
This information provided on this course has ranged from how to become registered with your local authority to how to identify weeds in your garden with little or no sight.
Importantly, Managing Sight Loss sessions allowed attendees to share their ideas and learn from one another. Recognising that being blind or partially sighted can be stressful and a new diagnosis of sight loss can have an emotional impact, sessions focused on mental wellbeing and resilience.
It is London Vision’s long-term plan to bring these successful Managing Sight Loss sessions into the wider community. London Vision will do this by working with partners and specialists to ensure the highest quality of support and information.
