There are almost two million people in the UK living with sight loss.  That number is set to increase dramatically in the future.

It is predicted that by 2020 the number of people with sight loss will rise to over 2,250,000. By 2050, the number of people with sight loss in the UK will double to nearly four million.

  • What does this mean to you and your business or service?
  • Are you, your products, services and staff ready to provide for this growing market?

People with sight loss have difficulty accessing services and provisions.  They don’t stop needing them – they simply can’t access them.

Our service is for organisations that want to tap into this growing, lucrative market and increase customer/user satisfaction.

We are Eye Wish Access, a north-east team of accredited vision awareness trainers.

Unlike other training providers, we offer direct access to those with first-hand experience of visual impairment. This is because all of our trainers are accredited and, uniquely, visually impaired.

We work with organisations across all sectors to increase staff confidence and the efficient use of resources.

We train visually impaired people to become accredited vision awareness trainers with Eye Wish Access. This develops their skills, confidence and employability prospects.
