In July we launched our 10 principles of good practice in vision rehabilitation. Co-produced with over 130 blind and partially sighted people and sight loss professionals, they set out what good vision rehabilitation looks like and importantly what service you can expect from your local authority.
Throughout July and August we have been promoting the principles alongside the ‘See, Plan, Provide’ campaign as a checklist for local authorities to ensure that blind and partially sighted people have access to rehabilitation and social care services, as well as ensuring that blind and partially sighted people's needs are met by the Care Act.
The principles and campaign will be supported by further work including case studies, qualitative research and a cost avoidance report.
