Sight loss help
People with sight loss will have the chance to get expert advice at the launch of a new event in Castle Douglas next week.
Four organisations providing support will join together to host Vision Hub at the community centre on Monday.
Local representatives from Scottish War Blinded, Macular Society, Visibility and Deafblind Scotland will offer tips on how each service can help people. The Macular Society’s Jamie Cuthbertson will share information on telephone counselling and support groups. Visibility’s Craig McLagan will tell how staff do home visits to discuss adapting to sensory loss.
The event will take place from 10.30am to 2pm.
