Insight Course

This is a four week course (one day a week) for people with sight impairment or severe sight impairment. The programme introduces people with sight impairment to the local and national support available to help them adjust to living with sight loss and move forward with their lives. 

The course provides:

  • An opportunity to meet and share your experiences with others in a similar position
  • Advice on managing your reduced vision, getting around, leisure and independence, daily living, equipment and much more
  • Valuable information on services, groups, benefits and funding that are potentially available to help you
  • An opportunity to put your questions to Low Vision Specialists, Rehabilitation Officers and other key people. 

“Amazing to gain independence. This is the first time in 4 years that I’ve been out without my husband as I worry about falls and my sight – it’s a new life!

Mrs A, course delegate.

Insight courses are held at 156 Mannamead Road, PL3 5QL. Courses are FREE with refreshments and a light buffet lunch provided. Transport can be arranged; albeit, we appreciate a donation towards your transport costs.
