Need to Talk – counselling and confidence building support

Gentleman chatting on the phone

Our Need to Talk team supports adults and young people over the age of eleven who are blind or partially sighted, and anyone who supports a person with sight loss, to face the future with confidence.

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).
