From isolation to exploration: what you can do to build your confidence when travelling

During Loneliness Awareness Week, we're hosting a special webinar to address the challenges faced by individuals with sight loss when it comes to travel and mobility.

Research by RNIB has highlighted the critical need for enabling greater fulfilment and freedom through travel, with a significant impact on quality of life. According to their findings, 59% of respondents felt that exploring different parts of the country had a huge positive impact on their well-being, yet a lack of confidence often leads to loneliness and isolation.

Listen to an informative session designed to help build your confidence in travelling and overcoming barriers associated with sight loss. Our expert panel includes:

  • Simon Labbett: Chair of the Rehabilitation Workers Professionals Network. Simon will share invaluable hints and tips on how to navigate your surroundings and boost your confidence in travel.
  • Angie Baum: Development Intern living with retinitis pigmentosa (RP). Angie will share her inspiring story of overcoming travel fears with the help of her guide dog, Norma.
  • Richard Zimbler: Co-facilitator of our ‘Talking Travel’ online group. Richard will discuss various aspects of travel, from everyday errands to adventurous trips across the country and abroad.

Don’t miss this opportunity to gain practical advice and support to help you move more freely and confidently.

This webinar was originally broadcast on Thursday 13th June 2024.
