Employment and welfare
It is vital blind and partially sighted people have equal opportunities when it comes to accessing the professional environment.
We at RNIB strongly support the Access to Work scheme because it enables blind and partially sighted people of working age to become economically active and independent. There are over 80,000 blind and partially sighted people of working age in the UK but only one third are currently in employment.
