As wonderful as it is that the world is starting to open back up, new social distancing measures create additional barriers for a person with visual impairment, making it increasingly difficult for people with sight loss to venture out into their community and access local businesses.
Therefore now, more than ever, making your business sight loss friendly is so important and we can help you to make your business more accessible with our free business training sessions.
We can tailor this FREE training to meet the needs of your business, however the sessions usually cover aspects such as:
• Identifying sight loss
• Impact of sight loss
• Common sight conditions
• Medical and social model
• Barriers to accessibility for people with sight loss
• Breaking down the barriers
• Covid-19 and sight loss
Businesses that participate in sight loss training have the opportunity to be part of our Sight Loss Friendly Organisations Scheme. Becoming a Sight Loss Friendly Organisation will not only raise the profile of your organisation, but you will also be helping to promote a more inclusive environment and ensuring your organisation is as inclusive as it can be for people with sight loss.
We award participating businesses with a certificate and digital logo which you can use to demonstrate your commitment to ensuring accessibility to both staff and customers with sight loss.
