Blind and partially sighted people ‘spurred’ on by support from Tottenham Hotspur Foundation
A scheme to help newly blind people to cope with sight loss is being launched by Tottenham Hotspur Foundation with Action for Blind People.
The free six-week course will introduce residents from Waltham Forest who have just lost their sight to practical solutions to everyday tasks.
Stephen Weymouth, business development manager for Action for Blind People, said: “Losing your sight doesn’t mean losing your independence but for someone newly diagnosed with sight loss, the future can seem daunting.
“We’re extremely grateful to the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation for their fantastic support in making this happen.”
Gareth Jones, Tottenham Hotspur Foundation’s Senior Inclusion Projects Officer, said: “It is a real pleasure to be able to work with Action for Blind People and support their living with sight loss programme.”
