A new online housing guide for people with sight loss has been launched, collecting together existing resources, advice and podcasts to help people in a range of situations.
The free guide has been created by sight loss charity Thomas Pocklington Trust, as a comprehensive portal for visually impaired people who are looking for a new home or experiencing housing issues.
Users are linked to relevant information depending on their circumstances – for example, people seeking information on independent living, people whose homes need repairs, and those facing homelessness or eviction.
A wide range of topics are covered, including advice on renting and buying a home, resources to help with household tasks, local authority support, and a housing ‘jargon buster’.
One section of the guide focuses on technology that can aid independent living, such as smartphone apps.
The online housing guide for people with sight loss is available on the Thomas Pocklington Trust’s website.
