Big Lottery Funding

Following the award of a grant from Big Lottery Awards for All, the British Wireless for the Blind Fund is undertaking a project using technology to help reduce the social isolation of visually impaired people.

The project will demonstrate to older blind and partially sighted people the latest digital audio equipment and their accessibility features including tablet PCs, smart phones, audio players and e-readers.

The technology used in the project is extremely interactive and will make it easier for the visually impaired to keep in touch with friends and family, find out about local services, shop online and continue to enjoy their hobbies.

As they will be working in partnership with many blind organisations throughout the next 12 months, look out for British Wireless’s information stands at various community locations across England to find out more about this exciting, ground breaking project.
