Covid-19 pandemic

We have worked closely with other sight loss organisations and Department of Health and Social Care during the Covid-19 pandemic to support blind and partially sighted people.

Our work has included helping people access food supplies and medicines, supporting the rollout of the Covid vaccines and working to deliver accessible Covid testing.

Distancing Blind

The Covid-19 pandemic caused major changes in the way the world worked. Shops introduce one-way systems and new safety requirements. Blind and partially sighted people were left worrying about travelling on public transport and getting the assistance they needed under social distancing measures.

We created a suite of best practice guides for local service providers and businesses to highlight what measures they could put in place to help blind and partially sighted people social distance.
