RNIB NI Community Access Service
Do you or does someone you know need support in accessing social and leisure activities in your area?
We offer individual and group support for blind and partially sighted people, so that you feel empowered to access all the services you want in your local community.
What we do
We work with individuals and their key health and social care professionals, in all five Health and Social Care Trusts in NI.
We also deliver Visual Awareness Training to statutory, private and voluntary sector organisations. This training is designed to equip organisations with the skills and knowledge to include blind or partially sighted people in all aspects of their services.
If you've been diagnosed with sight loss, why not find out more about our range of activity programmes. Continue with your hobbies and leisure activities or, maybe just try something new. A wide range of day-time social activities are available
Sports and leisure activities
RNIB NI also supports many different sporting and leisure groups that meet on a regular basis throughout Northern Ireland. These are facilitated by our Community Access staff and Youth Officers. From walking to swimming, from ten pin bowling to yoga.
If we don't provide your chosen activity or service ourselves, we'll do our best to sign-post you to somewhere that does.
Finding Your Feet
Find out more about our Finding Your Feet programmes and how this support can help you take positive steps to deal with some of the challenges you can face as a result of losing your sight.
Just contact your local RNIB NI Premises and find out what's happening near you!
If you're not sure who to speak to then just call our main switchboard and a member of staff will be happy to help.
