Thomas Pocklington Trust and Housing Options Scotland are launching the findings of an innovative pilot housing brokerage service for younger adults with visual impairment in Edinburgh on March 9.

The event will set out how Housing Options Scotland (HOS) provided the pilot housing brokerage service, which was funded by leading sight loss charity Thomas Pocklington Trust (TPT), across Scotland, and the evaluation of this service.

Members of the housing, volunteering, and eye health and sight loss sectors are welcome to attend the event to hear about how the innovative service was run and the positive impact it had for service users, including a short video featuring a younger person who has benefited from this approach.

It will also showcase a housing information and advice guide specifically aimed at younger adults with visual impairment that has been developed by TPT.

The free event will be held on Thursday 9 March at the Caledonian Hall, Edinburgh Royal Botanic Gardens, 20A Inverleith Row, Edinburgh, EH3 5LR from 10am until 2pm, including lunch.
