New – free eLearning courses
Online "Living With Sight Loss" course – for individuals, friends and family
Our online confidence building programme will support you in adapting to life with sight loss. We’ll explore the same range of topics as our face to face courses, such as: mobility and daily living; emotional support and wellbeing; eye health, peer support and assistive technology.
This can be taken at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home.
Close family or friends have also found this course beneficial in understanding how they can support their loved one.
