Transport and getting around
We believe that being blind or partially sighted shouldn't mean giving up the right to being able to independently get around.
A well placed road crossing, a clear pavement or provision of accessible bus information could stop a town centre becoming a no-go area.
Government and public bodies regularly consult on their plans and it can be a great opportunity for us to influence. It could be a Parliamentary Select Committee looking for evidence, a public body producing guidance or even the first draft of a piece of legislation.
In the 'Who put that there! report we call for reviewed policies and guidance to enable blind and partially sighted people to get out and about safely and indepently.
