Welcome to the 'Talking' Travel Peer Support Group where we invite you to come and share your experiences, tips and hints around all things Travel at our bi-monthly meetings, from going on holidays to general every day getting about.

We are pleased to invite you to the launch of our new focused interest peer support group called Talking Travel where we will be delighted to introduce facilitators Richard Zimbler and Rachael Foley. Richard, our local group facilitator for Wrexham & Wales, and Rachael, our local group facilitator for Manchester, are both keen travellers within the UK as well as abroad and have a wealth of knowledge regarding mobility as visually impaired individuals.

This group will give you the opportunity to share your travelling experience, tips, hints & advice from general mobility, including white cane and guide dog training, to public transport and V.I Activity Holidays to Travelling abroad. Please come along to meet other like-minded travellers & day trippers across the UK via this online meeting and share your pros & cons of getting out and about or fears & frustrations of travelling with sight loss.

Whether it’s a long weekender to the Lake District or an all-inclusive once in a lifetime paradise island getaway, whether you are an experienced traveller or a beginner who would like to gain more confidence and independence by plane, train, bus or foot, then please come join us and take that trip or vacation you have always dreamed of.

We hope you can join us and look forward to seeing you there!



This meeting will be held online via Zoom.
