How blind and partially sighted people get around

We want to share how changes to our streets and vehicles are affecting the lives of blind and partially sighted people to help others understand why inclusive design is so important when it comes to our streets.

We all need to use our streets, whether that’s getting to work, going to the shops, taking care of our health or seeing friends and family. But for blind and partially sighted people, lots of things make it harder to get around, from bins or bikes left on the pavement, to the poor design making it difficult to cross the road safely.

We can all play our part to make our streets more accessible and inclusive so everyone can use our streets independently.
