The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), Guide Dogs and Thomas Pocklington Trust have jointly launched this study to uncover the realities of life for blind and partially sighted people in the UK today. 

The research, which will be conducted by interviews with hundreds of people and runs until November 2020, will help build an accurate and up-to-date view of the experiences and needs of blind and partially sighted people. The results will be shared across the sector to improve services and support for people with a vision impairment.

Hilary Ingleton, Head of Research and Insight at RNIB, said: “This new study is the first of its kind. By working collaboratively with Guide Dogs and Thomas Pocklington Trust, we can generate better intelligence, which can then be shared across the sector to make a bigger impact. By taking part, you will have a direct hand in the future of support for blind and partially sighted people in the UK.” 

The research is being carried out via telephone interviews; these may last up to 50 minutes and are being conducted by our research partners Acumen and DJS research.
