Peer Support Volunteer: Visual Impairments (Dewsbury)

Kirklees Visual Impairment Network is a user-led organisation run by and for people with Visual Impairments (VIs). We want to be able to enrich visually impaired people’s lives through enabling them to use products and technology (equipment, software and apps) that can help them be as independent as possible and enjoy life to the full. We run drop-in peer support sessions in Huddersfield and Dewsbury to support people to know what technology may benefit them and train them to use them.
