Members of our campaigns team were in Essex finding out about vision rehabilitation and talking about our See, Plan and Provide campaign.
On Friday 22 July, we met the Cheshire West and Chester Council sensory loss team to discuss vision rehabilitation support as part of our see, plan and provide campaign.
We’re really worried concerned that many blind and partially sighted people are failing to receive vital vision rehabilitation support. Our latest report, See, Plan and Provide offers a stark picture of inadequate access to assessments and support for vision rehabilitation.
On Thursday 9 June, people with sight loss met with key figures from Rotherham Council to raise their concerns about the current state of Rotherham’s vision rehabilitation services.
Following objections from us, local residents and other organisations, Devon County Council has abandoned plans to increase charges for social care services.
