A free course in Swindon will help local people who have lost their sight to regain their confidence and independence.
Run by charity Action for Blind People, ‘Finding your Feet’ takes place at Tesco Extra, Ocotal Way, from 10.30am to 3.30pm on Friday 11 March. The course will provide information, advice and practical skills for anyone who has sight loss as well as their family and friends.
The sessions will provide people with sight loss advice on a range of essential everyday skills such as how to get around outside, use public transport, cook healthy meals, shop and bank online and even how to make a cup of tea safely.
Lizzie Abnett, from Action for Blind People, said: “It can be frightening and overwhelming for someone newly diagnosed with sight loss but practical and emotional support is available.
“Being blind or partially sighted does not have to mean losing your confidence or independence. We hope anyone in Swindon living with or affected by sight loss will sign-up to the ‘Finding your Feet’ course, come and share their experiences with others, and benefit from the wide range of information and advice on offer.”
