Leisure and fitness resources
Our leisure and fitness resources and best practice guides are for gym and leisure operators and professionals that support blind and partially sighted people.
Make Sport Accessible
UK Coaching and Thomas Pocklington Trust created a training resource for gym and leisure operators to make sport accessible for people with a visual impairment.
Physical Activity and Vision Rehabilitation Guide
Our partners at British Blind Sport, Metro Blind Sport, Rehabilitation Workers Professional Network, Visionary, The Wilberforce Trust and North East Sensory Services created a guide for vision rehabilitation workers supporting blind and partially sighted adults through physical activity.
This is supported by physical activity and vision rehabilitation activity cards for vision rehabilitation workers supporting blind and partially sighted adults through physical activity.
Vision awareness training
To accompany our Sight Loss Councils’ Vision Awareness (VI) training, venues receive our leaflet ‘Ask. Don’t assume’ which gives them an overview on sighted guiding
You can read more detailed guidance on sighted guiding on RNIB’s website.
