NCBI is committed to raising awareness of vision impairment. The greatest barrier to fair and equal treatment of people with impaired vision is lack of understanding. By raising awareness and explaining about sight loss, we aim to remove the barriers to full participation in all areas of life which are currently faced by people with impaired vision.
More and more organisations realise that their buildings, services and information should be accessible to people with disabilities. While this is partly as a result of the 2005 Disability Act, public and private organisations are also paying more attention to the people who access their services and understand that people with disabilities cannot be excluded.
The aim of disability awareness training is to remove some of the communication, attitudinal and physical barriers that prevent people with sight loss from fully participating in society.
