RNIB Cymru wants runners taking part in this year’s Cardiff Half Marathon to raise money to support people living with sight loss in Wales.
This year RNIB Cymru is offering runners the chance to contribute towards the RNIB Talking Books Appeal. Talking Books provide a lifeline for blind and partially sighted people by allowing them to access their favourite audiobooks. There are currently 182 Talking Book users in the Cardiff area alone.
Howard Jones who lives in Newport and is registered blind is a self-employed Chartered Certified Accountant and owns Howard Jones Accountancy which operates from the Old Provisions Market in Newport, is organising a 1,000 or a 500 rep gym challenge at the Forum Health Club on Saturday May 13 2017 at 2pm.
With a month to go until the Local Authority elections across Wales, RNIB Cymru has set out steps that local authorities can take to support blind and partially sighted people to live independent lifestyles.
RNIB Cymru is Wales’ largest sight loss charity. We provide a wide range of services and support to blind and partially sighted people across Wales, as well as campaigning on behalf of blind and partially sighted people in Wales and raising awareness of the issues they face on a daily basis.
For most of us, carrying out everyday tasks and getting around safely and independently in our own homes is merely part of our daily routine. However, people with learning disabilities and sight loss can find such day-to-day tasks extremely challenging because housing does not meet their needs. Simple changes can make a big difference!
In December 2015, the Welsh Government established an Expert Group on Housing an Ageing Population. The purpose of this time-bound Group was to develop practicable and deliverable proposals to inform the Welsh Government’s policy approach to housing an ageing population.
The Group has now submitted its report, Our Housing AGEnda: meeting the aspirations of older people in Wales.
