Groups and courses
Our online community hubs take place via video or phone call. The fortnightly sessions provide an opportunity for people with a visual impairment to come together to chat and share experiences, supported by Visibility Scotland. The discussion will centre around a different topic during each meeting, however the sessions are flexible and participants are encouraged to come with ideas or questions.
EyeCan! (open to Glasgow City residents only)
A 6 week self-management course introducing positive life habits and coping strategies to people living with a visual impairment. The course will support participants to better manage daily life and maximize independent living skills via guided practical sessions. The course will inform participants and their family or carer on healthy foods & diet, increasing confidence with mobility and reducing falls, and offer emotional support with mental well-being strategies.
