The benefits to your organisation
The Dark Experience has been designed specifically to help you and your team:

- Improve interaction and communication, and get immediate feedback on what does and doesn’t work
- Find new ways to solve familiar problems
- Increase their awareness of what it means to live with sight loss
"You quickly bond with people as you have to rely on each other. It's funny that 20 minutes ago I was sitting in an office in Belfast to then being in the black going round an obstacle course, relying on people I'd never met. You end up putting your trust in people you didn't even really know before really quickly. I was dependent on the people ahead of me and had a sense of responsibility to pass that information on to the people coming behind me. It's a very real experience. I really appreciated having a sense of what blind or partially sighted people deal with, even for that short period of time."
- Ciaran Doherty, Translink Northern Ireland.
"It sounds ironic, but this is a really eye opening experience! As a company we've already had colleagues take part in The RNIB Dark Experience from our Belfast Gasworks site and the benefits for teambuilding really stood out then, and again, today. In any workplace, you have people of differing strengths and weaknesses but in this type of environment, you're all the same, relying on the people around you to get through the challenges that the Dark Experience, definitely present. We hope to give more colleagues the opportunity to share the experience in the near future."
- Brendan Morrison, Halifax.
