    Hello @sparklebright628

    I hope you are keeping well? I'd have a look on meetup.com, they have lots of in personal and virtual events across the UK. They would be a great place to start :) As for Computer Courses, have you looked to see what the local council or collages have to offer? Any luck?

    Hi Hannah

    Sightsupport have been out to see me and given me walking aids to use but because I can see out of one eye some of the time blurred vision still occurring my daughter says I don't need them I do need them for when I have possible sight loss in my left eye.
    I should have had all this support when I was small not just left yo defend for myself for such a long time.
    I have also been given a hot water dispenser to use for hot drinks.

    What do I say about the above
    The Sight Support Lady says she is comming back out on the 13th of July to go out with me with the walking aids.

    Hello Sparklebright628

    While your daughter may have a different opinion, it's important to prioritise your own needs and listen to the advice of professionals who have assessed your situation. If the Sight Support lady recommended the walking aids, it's likely that she believes they will be beneficial for you.   

    Regarding your inquiry about Art Groups and Computer Courses Level 3 in your first post, it may be worth mentioning this to the lady from the sight support.  She may have knowledge about courses specifically designed for individuals with visual impairments, or if not she may  be able to put you in touch with organisations that can assist you.   

    It's understandable that you may feel frustrated about not receiving this support earlier in your life. You have patiently awaited much needed support, it's high time to embrace all the assistance that comes your way.

    Hello @sparklebright628

    I'm so glad to hear you are finally getting the support. How do you feel about the 13th? Are you going to plan to go anywhere specific? make the day of it?

    MW123's suggestion to ask the lady from sight support is a really great idea :)
