Visual Impairment Awareness Training in-house courses

Two million people in the UK are visually impaired, and this figure is estimated to increase to four million by 2050, the combined result of an ageing population, together with soaring obesity and diabetes rates.

Visualise delivers specialist visual impairment (VI) awareness training to businesses for communicating with, and assisting, visually impaired customers and employees. Our training gives insights into the barriers faced by many visually impaired people, and provides the skills and confidence to better assist, and overcome these.
