SEND Local Offer Rutland Information Service

Sensory impairment awareness training

Vista‚Äôs training sessions are ideal for those interested in finding out about how to support someone with sight loss. 

Open to both individuals and groups, the sessions raise awareness of sensory impairments and promote independence, emotional well-being and social inclusion for people with a visual or dual sensory impairment.

Participants will develop practical skills and gain the confidence to support someone with sight loss. They will also receive a certificate upon completion of the course. 

Workplaces can take part in the training to ensure their services and information comply with the Equality Act 2010 and are accessible for people with sight loss.

Booking is essential and there is a cost for those outside of Vista.

** As you know we are currently in unprecedented times. Our head office staff are working from home and all of Vista's shops are closed. Only essential staff and visitors will be allowed in our homes.

The DeafBlind team are still providing essential 1:1 support for the people they work with. For any queries, please contact us on 0116 249 8839. **
