Support is available if you are losing your sight

A series of workshops in locations across England, Scotland and Wales is being run to make research and evidence more accessible to eye health and sight loss professionals.

The workshops will address the following questions, and consider how this information can be applied:

  • what do national surveys tell us about the lives of people with sight loss such as their health, employment, transport and wellbeing?
  • what information on people with sight loss is available for your local area?
  • how can you measure service outcomes and evidence impact?
  • how can you stay in touch with, and influence, developments in research?

The workshops are free to attend, will be interactive and allow opportunity for networking.

Locations and dates and for the first workshops are:

  • Bristol - Tuesday 11 March
  • London - Monday 14 April
  • Preston - Monday 12 May
  • York - Monday 19 May

Further dates will announced in the coming weeks for workshops in Scotland, Wales, Birmingham and a second date in London.
