Researchers toolkit

Our Researchers’ Toolkit shares good practice principles around inclusion and engagement of visually impaired people in the research process and practical guidelines on producing accessible materials.

The toolkit highlights the most important issues, definitions and divergences so that researchers new to the sight loss sector can begin to build a knowledge base without ‘reinventing the wheel’.

We need to point out that this toolkit was created in 2014 to share good practice. Although the principles of engaging and recruiting research participants remain the same, some new platforms have emerged since this time.
