'Blind and partially sighted people's experiences of domestic abuse' - New report from Vision Foundation
A new report from Vision Foundation, a sight loss charity working in London, and SafeLives, the UK-wide charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse, reveals the extent of domestic abuse against people with a vision impairment, and the particular problems they face when trying to access support.
The report, 'Blind and partially sighted people's experiences of domestic abuse', estimates that at least 1 in 12 visually impaired people in the UK is a victim or survivor of domestic abuse, but that support services have little specialist training to enable them to provide assistance. It includes six key recommendations for the sight loss sector, and society.
