‘Living with Sight Loss’ is a free, weekly confidence building course starting on Tuesday, April 21, in a local hotel in Drogheda. The four-week course will help people who have experienced sight loss to increase their confidence and independence. Partners, family and friends are welcome to attend.

The first session will take place on Tuesday April 21. The other three sessions will take place on Tuesday 28 April, 5 and 12 May 2020.

This course is delivered through the ‘Need to Talk’ project, an emotional support and confidence building service supported by the European Union’s INTERREG VA Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).

The informal course will provide information and practical advice on a range of essential everyday topics such as getting out and about, information about welfare rights, and how technology can make life that bit easier.

The course is available to anyone living with sight loss in the border counties of Louth, Donegal, Cavan, Sligo, Leitrim and Monaghan.
