Dear -

We are calling on the public to ‘Be There’ and offer help to those trying to social distance without sight.


We have three key tips to help you feel confident in offering support whilst maintaining a safe distance during COVID-19.


Simply by letting someone with sight loss know you are nearby; you are giving them the opportunity to ask for any assistance if they need it.
