Insufficient support for people with visual impairments
20th October 2009 developer

The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) says that of the 100 people who will lose their sight today, support will only be offered to only 8.

Lost and Found is the name of the campaign by the RNIB, this has the support of Sue Townsend, a bestselling author.

RNIB spokesman Fazilet Hadi criticised the ‘systematic failure in the UK to provide vital support’. The charity has called upon the Health Secretary Andy Burnham to prioritise support services.
