What is on the mobile?
Friendly and knowledgeable staff from Action for Blind People will show you around the mobile, demonstrate low vision equipment and answer any questions you may have.
We always encourage representatives from local agencies to join us so you will probably find a rehabilitation worker, welfare rights officer and/or representative from your local visual impairment society on hand to offer advice and information about local services for blind and partially sighted people.
We carry information, catalogues and equipment representing the major visual impairment organisations and suppliers, including:
RNIB - kitchen equipment, household products, DIY gadgets and a whole range of information services.
