The Digital Vision Service teaches people with sight loss how to use the accessibility features on their digital devices. This service is crucial, especially during the current situation.

It has been successful in securing an extension to the current National Lottery Community Fund period. The project will now conclude in September rather than April.

The challenge for the next 6 months is developing the online support and hopefully with the role out of the vaccine some face-to-face support again.

Ian Watts, Vista’s Digital Vision Project Officer, said;

“Supporting people with technology through this difficult time has proven to be a challenge and we have adapted the service to include telephone support and online sessions. We are now visiting people at home again, safely and following all necessary precautions. The project has been running for nearly two years and Vista have successfully applied for a 6-month extension to continue this much needed and supportive service”.
