Wales Vision Strategy 2018 - 2021 launched

The Wales Vision Strategy 2018 - 2021 has been launched at the Senedd, as part of Sensory Loss Awareness Month.

The Wales Vision Strategy exists to deliver positive change for blind and partially sighted people in Wales, their communities and the general population including those at risk of sight loss, and it reflects the priorities of blind and partially sighted people. It has been developed in collaboration with stakeholder organisations. The document reviews the achievements of the period 2014 - 2018, and sets future priorities.

The strategy is available in English and Welsh.

Audio Description Commentary at Wrexham Football Club

Wrexham Disabled Supporters Association (DSA) in association with sponsors North Wales Masons and The Maesgwyn Hall, has introduced audio description commentary at Wrexham Football Club’s home matches, starting on 8th December. This is a good opportunity for younger people with sight loss who have never been to a match to give it a try – and for older supporters with visual problems to continue their attendance.

The commentary will be provided by three trained audio describers. Nine receivers are available, and will be free to use. If you would like to attend a match, please contact Wrexham DSA on or Steve Gilbert on 076961 44 55 45 in advance to confirm the arrangements.
