Conversation topic: Using technology to keep reading

Our rehabilitation and technology specialists will be on hand to provide support on how technology can help you keep reading.

About the pop up open day

The day is an opportunity for anyone curious about what we do to come by, have a cuppa on us and find out how we help people adjust to deteriorating vision so they can get on with living the life they want.

People can be surprised to learn that although the organisation has the word ‘blind’ in its name, three out of every four people who use the Blind Foundation’s services are not blind.

You do not need to be blind to benefit from the services we have to support with vision loss.

The invitation to attend is open to everyone and likely to appeal to those with deteriorating eyesight or low vision and their families, who can find out more about the options available to assist.

About the equipment display

The Blind Foundation’s equipment display days are a great opportunity to find out about the different items that are available. It’s a chance to try some of the equipment out, and order the items that suit you best.

All of our members, clients, and the general public are welcome to attend these equipment display days. Knowledgeable staff will be on hand to demonstrate the items and answer any questions you may have.

For more information, please email the Equipment Services Team or phone Equipment Services on 0800 243 333.

As Equipment Display Days might be subject to change, please contact your nearest Blind Foundation office to confirm details.
