Visual Impairment Benchmarking in Wales.


In March 2003 the Association of Directors of Social Services (ADSS) in Wales agreed to support the establishment of a benchmarking club to consider visual impairment in Wales, at the request of Wales Council for the Blind (WCB).

Alongside ADSS and WCB, the work has been supported by all local authorities, the Welsh Assembly Government, Social Services Inspectorate in Wales (SSIW), the Royal National Institute of the Blind, (RNIB Cymru) and various other voluntary organisations working with and for visually impaired people in Wales.
