Our Chair Eleanor Southwood has highlighted our serious concerns about e-scooters, to the Transport Select Committee in Parliament.
With trial rental e-scooter schemes set to begin in some areas, we’re determined to speak up about the risk they pose to blind and partially sighted pedestrians.
We take a walk with local council representatives to show them how people with sight loss are being affected by changing street layouts.
We worked with expert patients and the UK Ophthalmology Alliance (UKOA), to make sure new consent forms for eye health treatments are easier to read, with clearer communication of any risks.
Following our campaigning for accessible information, we’re delighted that the Government’s latest letter to people ‘shielding’ due to Covid-19, is available in alternative formats.
