Charlene’s story

Many people, just like Charlene Kerr-Spencer, will benefit from our fantastic new partnership with People’s Postcode Lottery. 
Charlene was working as a nurse when she developed an eye disease called keratoconus. Her sight eventually deteriorated to the extent that she could no longer drive, work, or independently carry out everyday living tasks.
“It felt like I lost a big part of my life,” says Charlene. “Over the past two years and with the help of RNIB I have realised that having a visual impairment does not mean not being able to do things, but simply doing things differently.”

RNIB Connect

Charlene got involved with RNIB Connect because she “wanted to enjoy life again”. The Connect community helps people with sight loss to meet others; to share similar experiences and information, find advice and guidance both face-to-face and online.

RNIB Connect discussion boards

“Through the RNIB Connect discussion boards, I got advice regarding computer software that helps me live with my condition”, Charlene explained.

RNIB Connect Radio

Charlene told us “I enjoy listening to RNIB Connect weekly radio show. There’s lots of discussion about really useful topics.”

Living with Sight Loss course

“The Living with Sight Loss course at RNIB was so helpful in giving me advice on everyday living. It’s something that everyone affected by sight loss should attend.”

Community events

“I was a member of the events organisation team,” said Charlene. “We worked to help promote awareness of living with sight loss in Stoke and Coventry. I also arranged a social evening in a local café to give an opportunity for people living with sight loss: friends, family and carers to come together, socialise and support each other.”

Invaluable support 

“I have really enjoyed being involved in RNIB Connect,” said Charlene. “I have met a lot of new people and have learned so many new skills so that I can function more independently and effectively. I have also become more confident and motivated.”

RNIB Connect have connected me to a community that I was unaware of three years ago and have helped make life worth living again.
