In addition to the general RNIB helpline we provide a free information service.
This UK service offers information on relevant to sight difficulties for people with a learning disability and other complex needs such as dementia/stroke/autism.
RNIB UK Vision, Learning Disability and Complex Needs Services offers free, impartial information. Visual Impairment such as needing spectacles or sight impairment including blindness, is more common amongst people with a learning disability or intellectual disability, including people with complex needs such as brain injury and dementia. The information may help the person, the parent or carer of the person or people that provide services within the learning disability or visual impairment community.
Below are some examples of questions we are regularly asked. If we can help you please contact us directly.
