RNIB Cymru Director Ansley Workman highlights our wonderful work in Wales over the past 12 months.

It has been a very exciting year for RNIB Cymru.

Our mission is for Wales to be a place where blind and partially sighted people can participate equally. As our team has grown and developed, I am so proud of our work and successes.

We have spoken to thousands of blind and partially sighted people across Wales, helping us to fully understand the challenges they face and what can be done to make things better.

We have commissioned extensive research and channelled this insight into a strategy to deliver sustainable, positive social change.

As part of our mission to break down barriers and misconceptions, we have visited people and hosted events across the nation.

Our amazing staff and volunteers have empowered people with sight loss to access life-changing technology, reading materials, befriending groups, family events and sports opportunities. We directly supported over 7,700 people from across Wales who contacted us about our services, and our visually impaired (VI) rugby event with the Cardiff Rugby Foundation introduced over 80 children to the sport.

And we have worked hard to make Wales a more inclusive place to live for everyone, from campaigning for safer streets and accessible health information, to sharing guidance on creating accessible living and work environments.

You can find out all about our work in this year’s Impact Report, available online and in large print, braille and audio. We can’t wait to achieve even more over the next year.
