|Open Day - Thurso 19
An Open Day In Thurso To Raise Awareness Of Issues And Support For Visually Impaired People The Highland Society for Blind People and the Karten Technology Centre are holding an Open Day in The Band Room Thurso Town Hall on Tuesday 19th July from 10am to 4pm
This event is open to all to find out what support and aids are available to help improve the day to day activities of visually impaired adults and children. There will be a range of staff available to discuss any issues and demonstrate ways in which you can help support a visually impaired person. Please come and chat to us you don’t have to be registered as blind or visually impaired, it might be that you are finding that you or a neighbour or friend is no longer seeing quite as well and you want to find out if there are any low vision aids that could help. Would you like to know more about how eye conditions affect vision? We can demonstrate this by the use of “Sim Spec’s”.
Are you an employer? Did you know that blind and
partially sighted people work in a wide variety of jobs including Stone
Mason, Lawyer, Chef, Futures Trader, Computer Programmer, Script Reader,
Small Business Manager and Security Guard? Would you like advice on making
your service more accessible to our clients? Come along for a chat.
Whatever your interest you will be assured of a warm welcome. Come and have a chat and find out more about the services of Highland Society for Blind People.
