Join us LIVE on BBC Radio Sussex this Saturday

We are delighted to announce that our Senior Outreach Worker, Kirstie Thomas, will be live on BBC Radio Sussex at 2:45pm on Saturday 25th April.

Kirstie will be interviewed by Joe Talbot as part of the stations ‘Making a Difference’ series, to find out how we have adapted and are continuing to support people living with sight loss across West Sussex during the COVID-19 lockdown.

As Senior Outreach Worker, Kirstie works on ‘the front line’ of our service delivery and therefore has understanding and compassion for our 2,100 members who are at risk of isolation even more during this time. We will be sharing the ways in which we have adapted our services to ensure people with sight loss do not go through this crisis alone.

Enabling our members across the county continue to receive the specialist sight care advice and emotional support they need at a time when it matters most. Kirstie will also be sharing how other members of the public can support visually impaired people in their local communities at this time.
