Sensory impairment awareness training

Vista’s 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.

Upcoming training sessions are listed on the events page - prior booking is essential and there is a cost for those outside of Vista. For groups and businesses, training can also be provided at your own venue.
