Discuss what campaigns are happening and how you can support one another to make change happen!
We now have seven volunteers who have been trained to be telephone befrienders. They can call isolated blind and partially sighted people once a week, for a friendly chat with someone who is prepared to listen and be supportive. Please contact one of the community connection coordinators to find out more.
To join or find out more about any of the above groups contact our RNIB Wales Community Connection Coordinators:
