Improved help for the visually impaired

Friday, January 21, 2011

Heeley MP Meg Munn recently visited the Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind for a tour around their new building on Mappin Street. She was met by Steve Hambleton, General Manager of the facility, who took her around to inspect the facilities.

 

The buildings new facilities include a library full of audio and brail books and a computer room, which was hosting lessons on how to use a computer whilst blind. There was also a shop that offered all the latest equipment to allow blind people easy use of everyday equipment. 

 

Included in the visit was a discussion about the dangers inherent in the lack of regulation on the ownership of mobility scooters.  This is an issue that concerns Meg as she has been doing a lot of work with Driving Blind projects.

 

Meg said:

 

“The new facility is outstanding.  It offers many courses for the visually impaired and lots of help for those who need it. The work the institute is doing is excellent.”
