7 steps for support with a sight loss diagnosis (video)
The 7 Steps is a much needed roadmap for anyone dealing with a visual diagnosis, with the aim to reach as many people as possible with quality information, advice and guidance at a time when it is most needed. Receiving a sight loss diagnosis can be a very distressing and confusing time, and after hearing the news many people become isolated and go many years without the right support, or even knowing what their sight condition is. Our aim is that no one living with sight loss is alone.
We want to make sure everyone is able to receive the right level of expert support, to be better equipped to self-manage their condition, and make informed choices about their future. Our staff and service users worked together with Greater Manchester NHS to co-produce the 7 Steps, which has also been supported on a national scale by Vision UK. Other sight loss organisations across the country have adopted this tool, and use it to help their own beneficiaries on their sight loss journey.
If you are interested in adopting the 7 Steps for your own organisation, please contact us on 0300 222 5555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
