If you've been told you have an eye condition that could lead or has led to blindness or partial sight, this can be difficult to come to terms with or understand.
Everyone reacts differently to their diagnosis. Some feel shock, anger, fear, sadness, loss or a combination of these. You may worry how you will cope or feel upset about the changes you are facing. Some people will want to get practical things sorted before they can think about how they feel, whilst others will not be able to make use of practical support until they have begun to deal with their feelings. Some people will want to tackle both together.
We have provided this directory to offer blind and partially sighted people, as well as their carers, family and friends, the advice and encouragement everyone needs to help them lead independent lives.
This resource considers various aspects of sight loss and provides information and suggestions to help with daily life.
Within this resource there will be listed appropriate organisations and groups that can be contacted for further help and support. To begin with, here are two important numbers to know:
RNIB Action for Blind People: 0117 953 7750
RNIB Action Helpline: 0303 123 9999
