A free online confidence-building course to help people in Largs and Millport find their lives again after losing sight will be available later this month.

'Living with Sight Loss' is open to all in Ayrshire and is run by the charity RNIB Scotland over four Thursdays starting on November 26th until December 17th. It will take place from 10.30-11.30am.

It is aimed at providing practical and emotional support.

A range of different themes will be covered, including mobility and daily living, emotional support and wellbeing, assistive technology, eye health, peer support and leisure time.

As well as an opportunity for people with sight loss to connect with each other, family and friends are also invited to join and participate.

The course is part of RNIB Scotland's Need to Talk initiative, funded by the European Union's Interreg programme.
