    Hi and welcome to the community 

    I am also visually impaired not quite blind 

    Have you been registered blind ? 

    I was referred to my local sensory team through adult social services and they have been great giving me lots tips,  gadgets  , and getting me out on my own I am also in a wheelchair which adds to problem 

    But would recommend you get referred

    We do have a quite a few members who are visually impaired, including Janer1967, so I'm sure they'd be willing to give you some advice and support. Is there anything in particular you're struggling with at the moment?
