RNIB College Loughborough’s Bridge programme helps young adults with vision impairment move into their own home.

 
Two students from RNIB College Loughborough have successfully moved into supported living, after completing a placement on the Bridge programme.
 
The programme is a residential independence programme lasting up to one year. It provides young adults with the skills, experience and confidence to move into their own home. Students are encouraged and supported to carry out tasks themselves which typically may have been done for them.
 
They learn how to do their shopping and manage a budget, along with cooking, cleaning and undertaking activities in the local community.The college works with the student, their family, and the local authority and care provider to plan a smooth transition into their new life.
