There is legislation to protect blind and partially sighted people from unfair treatment. Know your rights and what to do if you feel you have been treated unfairly.
Know your rights
If you are blind or partially sighted, it is important you know your rights and if you are being discriminated against. The following pages have information on what help and level of customer service you can expect to receive from everyday services, your local community care team and at work. We also have information on the legislation in place to help you recognise and challenge different types of discrimination.
Benefits and concessions
We have lots of information on the different welfare benefits and other concessions you might be entitled to as a blind or partially sighted person.
