‘Living with Sight Loss’ is a free, weekly confidence building course starting on Tuesday, February 18, in a local hotel in Letterkenny. 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 18 February. The other three sessions will take place on Tuesday 25 February, 3 and 10 March 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 Donegal and the nearby border region of Leitrim, Sligo or Northern Ireland.
