Social care campaign

Social care and rehabilitation services are essential for anyone with sight loss, but they're under threat.

What should I expect from my council?

Understanding what support you should expect to receive from your council can be confusing. To help we have highlighted the top 10 things that you should expect. We worked on this briefing with oner of our campaigners, Ian. He told us:

"In order for people to demand the support they are entitled to, people need to understand what the details of the Care Act. So I’m really pleased RNIB have put together a briefing with the information campaigners need to know to get the most out of it."

Read Ian's blog to hear about his experience of rehab, and why he thinks understanding the Care Act is so important.
