    Wales Vision Strategy Successes


    A reception to celebrate the successes of the first year of the Wales Vision Strategy Implementation Plan 2014-18, was held today, Tuesday 12 May 2015 at the Senedd. 
    The Wales Vision Strategy Implementation Plan focuses on three outcome areas which include:
    • everyone in Wales looks after their eyes and sight
    • everyone with an eye condition receives timely treatment and early and appropriate services and support are available should sight loss occur 
    • help facilitate a society in which people with sight loss can fully participate. 

  • Dignity of blind and partially sighted people still not respected by the health service in Wales


    One year since standards for communicating with deaf, blind, partially sighted and deafblind people were introduced in Wales, 91% of patients say they’re not aware of any improvement.

  • Launch of Welfare Rights service for people with sensory loss


    RNIB Cymru is today launching an innovative specialist welfare rights service for people across Wales who are living with sensory loss and facing poverty and social exclusion.
