Tottenham Hotspur Foundation teams up Action for Blind People to launch course for the blind
A charitable foundation has launched a course to help blind people and those losing their sight develop confidence and life skills.
The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation is teaming up with a charity which supports the blind, Action for Blind People, to help visually impaired people in Haringey cope with living with sight loss.
The six-week course, which runs one day a week, is free but places must be booked before the programme starts on September 4.
Classes will provide information, advice, guidance and practical skills for people diagnosed as losing their sight.
Stephen Weymouth, of Action for Blind People, said: “Losing your sight doesn’t mean losing your independence although for someone newly diagnosed with sight loss, the future can seem daunting.
“We’re extremely grateful to the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation for their fantastic support in making this partnership happen.
“At Action for Blind People, we are moving away from ‘doing things for them’, to a culture of helping and working in partnership with people who have lost their sight.
“It’s about gradually restoring self-belief, confidence and independence.”
To book a place on Action for Blind People’s course, phone Susan Temniuk 020 7635 2151 or email email@example.com
