Experiencing Sight loss and don’t know what to do next? Follow the Seven Steps Initiative.
South Lincolnshire Blind Society is proud to have joined the Seven Steps initiative! The Seven Steps Programme is a much needed roadmap for anyone dealing with a visual diagnosis, which was launched by the sight loss charity Henshaws. The aim is to reach as many people as possible with quality information, advice and guidance.
Henshaws staff and service users worked together with Greater Manchester NHS to co-produce the Seven Steps, which has been supported on a national scale by Vision UK, and we’re pleased to be one of the partner organisations for the project. The guide can be displayed as posters, leaflets or boards in hospitals, clinics, and community hubs working with visually impaired people across the UK.
We’re hoping to spread the Seven Steps as far as possible by getting volunteers, members of the public, and businesses to share it – whether that’s displaying as posters, sharing on social media, etc. – to ensure that no one goes through sight loss alone. For more information on the initiative, or to share posters of your own, get in touch on 01476 592775.
