It’s estimated that more than two million people in the UK live with a visual impairment that is severe enough to have a significant impact on their daily lives. This number is expected to double by 2050 due to ageing, diabetes, obesity and lifestyle factors.

Remember, individuals with a visual impairment are just regular people – family members, colleagues, service users, professionals, managers and customers – only with sight differences.

By increasing your knowledge and understanding, you’ll become more confident when offering support and assistance and will make the world more inclusive, accessible, equal and enjoyable for people living with sight loss.
