Managing Sight Loss sessions
London Vision has been working in partnership with RNIB to deliver Living with Sight Loss courses across London. The need to continue social distancing means that we won’t be delivering face to face courses until January 2021.
We have now delivered fifteen Zoom-based Managing Sight Loss sessions since mid-July.
Sessions are friendly and relaxed, and we ensure that everyone has time to talk. Attendees tell us it makes a huge difference being able to talk to others in similar circumstances. Each session is themed, and we cover a variety of topics from registration, rights and benefits to sport and leisure.
We welcome friends and family and if you’ve never used Zoom we will do our very best to explain how it all works. If you would like to learn more, get in touch via e-mail email@example.com or call 020 3761 3651.
We look forward to you joining the sessions.
