How we can help you as an employer
If you have an employee who is losing their sight, it makes good business sense to keep them in their job. With advances in accessible technology and the financial support from the government’s Access to Work scheme, retaining your employee can be easier and more cost effective than you might think.
It might be difficult to understand how someone is going to be able to do certain things at work, for example, reading or using a computer or getting around the workplace safely. And how do you ask someone about their sight loss without offending them?
We can find the answers to these and other questions you might have. Our Let's Work Together employer guide can help you find out more about supports for you and your employee, and help you understand the steps you might take.
