Living with Sight Loss courses in Welshpool and Brecon

This autumn, RNIB is running free, 2 day information courses in Welshpool (26th September and 3rd October) and Brecon (24th and 31st October). The venue for the Welshpool course is 1st Clive’s Own Welshpool Scout Headquarters & Community Centre (COWSHACC), Oldford Lane, Welshpool, SY21 7TE. The Brecon course is at The Guildhall Brecon, LD3 7AL.

The courses enable those affected by sight loss either directly or indirectly to share experiences with others in similar situations and find out about national and local services. They also aim to help people affected by sight loss adjust to their sight condition, increase independence, boost confidence and be aware of and able to access ongoing support.

There will be talks from a number of service providers and a range of information on services and practical solutions will be discussed including:

Courses start at 10.30 am and finish at 3.30 pm on both days. This will be a very relaxed and welcoming event so please come along and bring a friend.

Booking is essential. For more information or to book please call Keira Brooks Confidence Building Co-ordinator on 07864 954150, email or click here. Courses will be run every 6 months or so in each of the Powys localities. Please contact Keira for further information.
