Campaigning news from the East of England
New RNIB research into the benefits of vision rehabilitation launched earlier in 2017, is already helping to boost local services across the country. Mike Bell, Policy and Campaigns Officer, tells us about the benefits for Essex.
We've been working with RNIB Connect Volunteers and partners in Norfolk to highlight the challenges of accessing Norwich City Centre since the implementation of a scheme that removed many of the controlled crossings in the area.
We’re delighted to announce that Michael Wordingham has joined the campaigns team as Regional Assistant Campaigns Officer for the East of England.
In Norwich, a group of campaigners and RNIB Connect volunteers have been working with local film maker Tom Westwood. Together, they’ve made a short film highlighting the challenges blind and partially sighted people are facing due to the changes made by the city council to the layout of Norwich city centre.
Across the East of England, campaigners are tackling the many obstructions that can make it harder for blind and partially sighted people to get out and about, as part of our 'Who put that there!' campaign.
