    Seescape has joined forces with Fife Carers Community Chest to provide training and support to unpaid carers about eye conditions, help with overcoming some of the challenges associated with low vision, and access to further support that is available for people with sight loss. 

    Seescape will run a series of information and guided walk training sessions in Fife communities aimed at anyone who cares for someone with sight loss. These free sessions will provide key insights into different eye conditions, how they impact on daily life, and what they do to soomeone's vision and mobility. Sessions will also include practical guidance such as information about gadgets, assistive technology, and support available through Seescape and partner organisations. There will also be Guide Assist Training to equip upaid carers with the skills to guide visually impaired adults safely, confidently, and with empathy. 

    Sessions will run in Dunfermline, Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy, Leven, Cowdenbeath, Inverkeithing, and Cupar.
