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 'Stop for me, Speak to me' campaign report 2013 we called for dramatic improvements in bus travel for passengers with sight loss.
