'My Voice 2015' - views and experiences of blind and partially sighted people in the UK

RNIB has produced a report based on their 'My Voice' project, which aims to better understand the circumstances, views and experiences of registered blind and partially sighted people. 'My Voice 2015' provides an update on the realities of life as a vision impaired person in the UK today, based on telephone interviews with over 1,200 participants from all parts of the UK.

The report paints a worrying picture, with half of the participants saying that they were limited in the activities that they were able to take part in, and less than one in three receiving any mobility training in the first year after experiencing sight loss. There has also been a reduction in the proportion of people in employment.You can find out more, and read the full report on RNIB's website.
