All those working within vocational rehabilitation on the island of Ireland or with links to Irish VR are welcome to join us for our network meeting as are visitors from further afield.
In this session on World Sight Day we’ll be looking at the RNIB employment services available in Northern Ireland and RNIB resources (which include lots of great free to access resources!) available for use throughout Ireland and further afield.
We will briefly look at some of the facts and figures related to sight loss and employment and some of the barriers to employment. Identify RNIB services that provides direct support to people in Northern Ireland with sight loss seeking to gain or retain employment. Finally, we will identify useful RNIB Employment resources and be on hand to answer any questions.
