Sight loss charities join together to launch online advice hub

A group of five charities launch Sight Advice FAQ website

Healthcare professional and patient
A group of five charities are working together to provide blind and partially sighted people with access to high-quality information about sight loss.

The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), Guide Dogs, Visionary, VICTA, Fight for Sight and Vision UK have produced and launched a new website, which is designed to house relevant content from across the sight loss sector.

The website, Sight Advice FAQ, answers a range of questions about living with sight loss, eye health and being newly-diagnosed with a sight condition. It is also designed for those who may be supporting someone with sight loss.

People using the site are able to type in a question using the search bar or use the menu to access the information they are looking for.

Head of advice and customer service at the RNIB, Jamie Dormandy, said that creating the website provided the organisations with “a great opportunity to collaborate to share resources and expertise.”

“People with sight loss have told us that it can be difficult to access the right information at the right time. This new Sight Advice FAQ portal is easy to navigate and fully accessible, and we hope it will become the go-to source for anyone looking for information about living with sight loss,” he added.
