    Hello @chantalhampson

    Wishing you a warm welcome to the community, I hope you are having a nice weekend. 

    Thank you for telling us about the business you have set up, it sounds really exciting and I'm sure you're delighted to be taking on this venture. As someone who has sight loss myself, I know how important those things you mention in your post are in terms of support.

    I have removed the leaflet section of your post because we do not allow advertising on the community, and I have also edited what seemed to be your full name out of your post, please let me know if I am mistaken. Please see our community house rules. If you would like us to change your username at all then do let us know, it's important to us to ensure your privacy.

    I wish you the very best with your company.
