There are currently about 2 million people in the UK living with some sort of sight loss. Among them, some 360,000 are registered as legally blind or partially sighted. Those numbers are expected to grow significantly between now and the end of the decade.
You might be looking for a new job because of:
Change in marital status
Change in your health
A move to another part of the country
A desire to do something different
As an individual suffering from sight loss, we know that you do not want to lose your freedom or have to unnecessarily depend on others for everything. You want to be able to work, both for your own well-being and to contribute to society. We can help.
