Need to Talk is a five-year (2017 - 2021) cross border counselling and confidence building project, delivered through a partnership between RNIB in Northern Ireland and Scotland, and Fighting Blindness in the Republic of Ireland. The €1.8million project is funded by the European Union's INTERREG VA Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).

Our online confidence building programme will support you in adapting to life with sight loss. We’ll explore the same range of topics as our face to face courses, such as: mobility and daily living; emotional support and wellbeing; eye health, peer support and assistive technology.
This can be taken at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home.
Close family or friends have also found this course beneficial in understanding how they can support their loved one.
To register your interest in attending a face to face Living With Sight Loss course near you, call the RNIB Helpline on 0303 123 9999.
This short online course (taking approximately 90 minutes to complete) will equip you to provide the best possible emotional support and practical advice to your current or future patients, clients, customers, and colleagues who have any degree of sight loss.
