Vision impaired people in west Norfolk are being offered free one-to-one technology training sessions to help them make the most of technology to help them live independently.
Norfolk sight loss charity Vision Norfolk has teamed up with the Royal National Institute of Blind People to offer the sessions, on Wednesday 15th November and Thursday 7th December.
People living with sight loss can book 45 minute one-to-one problem solving sessions with Mohammed Atif, who is technology for life co-ordinator at the RNIB. The sessions are free, and can be used to tackle any issues which people are having with digital technology and devices.
“Technology is transforming the way that vision impaired people can live independent lives,” said Penny Whitby, King’s Lynn hub co-ordinator for Vision Norfolk.
“But for those of us who didn’t grow up with digital technology, getting to grips with it – and really making the most of the opportunity technology offers – can be daunting. That is why we have got together with the RNIB to offer these personal one-to-one training sessions with one of the UK’s leading experts on technology for people living with sight loss.”
The sessions take place on Wednesday 15th November and Thursday 7th December from 11am to 4pm at Vision Norfolk’s King’s Lynn hub at Hamburg Way in the town. Sessions are free, but must be booked in advance. Help with transport to the venue may be available.
