Working Age Group Project Survey

Posted on: Monday, October 8th, 2018



You may be familiar with our ongoing Working Age Group Project, which aims to provide future employment services to working age people who are living with degenerative sight loss. This project is being led by RP Fighting Blindness, in partnership with sight loss charities Thomas Pocklington Trust, Visionary and RNIB.

In order to develop these services, and ensure the support we offer our community is relevant and useful, it is important we gather data and opinion on what the majority feel would be most helpful.

Below are links to a survey which now give you the chance to tell us directly what more assistance you would like to see for those looking for work, in the workplace or progressing in a career. The survey presents a number of exciting new ideas which people with inherited sight loss have shared with us already, and we really need your help now to establish which of the ideas has the most appeal.

There is a standard version of the questionnaire or a plain text version which is more suitable for those using screen reader software:

Plain text version of Survey

It should take around 20 minutes to complete, although you do not have to answer all questions or even complete it in one go, as you can stop and save your responses and complete at a later stage if you wish. The survey is completely anonymous so your answers will not be identifiable. Alpha Research Ltd is managing the data collection and analysis.

We greatly appreciate your input.
