As the Government encourages businesses to use more outdoor furniture for eating and drinking, we’ve been trying to make sure blind and partially sighted people are still able to navigate safely on pavements.
One of the ways coronavirus has turned the World Upside Down is the sheer number of new announcements and instructions the Government has issued to keep us all safe. We’ve been working hard to make sure this information is accessible to blind and partially sighted people.
We launched our World Upside Down campaign last week to increase understanding, among the public, of the challenges blind and partially sighted people face social distancing so they know how to help.
New shop layouts, signage and tape on the floor have made navigation more difficult. We’re asking the Government to act.
We're asking blind and partially sighted people to share their experiences of trial e-scooter renter schemes, so we can speak up about their impact.
