Vision Impairment RehabilitationFrom the RNIB

Vision impairment rehabilitation provides crucial training and advice to people with a visual impairment on how to maintain and live in their home safely, and how to negotiate the obstacles and risks outside of their home. It provides people with the skills and confidence they need to maximise independence and to access and participate in their community.

Seeing It My Way

seeing it my waySeeing it my way is an initiative to ensure that every blind and partially sighted person, regardless of age, ethnicity, extent of sight loss, other disabilities, or location across the UK, has access to the same range of information and support.
Living with little or no sight requires access to a range of information and support from a number of services, such as social services and voluntary sector organisations in order to live independently.
This includes information in a format that people can read, rehabilitation for people who lose their sight so they can gain the skills and confidence to carry out day-to-day tasks and get around easily.
Seeing it my way sets out a range of outcomes, that is specific changes that blind and partially sighted people have told us are most important to them and want to make a reality.
