Free Training Anyone?

Wiltshire Sight, in partnership with Visionary and Thomas Pocklington Trust are delighted to be able to offer local charities the opportunity to become Looking Out For Sight trainers.

Looking Out For Sight is a high impact, low cost training programme designed especially for delivery in health and social care settings. The Looking Out For Sight (LO4S) training programme raises awareness of the importance of eye health and has proven positive impact on staff, residents and the relationship between the setting and society.

  • 79% of care homes who participated have noticed improved communications between staff and residents
  • 94% of participants said that they had learnt new skills as a direct result of the training
  • 100% would recommend the training to colleagues and peers

Looking Out For Sight is different to general sight loss awareness training because it is delivered in one hour and focuses on the specific needs of individuals. With 50% of individuals living in a care setting having sight loss, there is a real need for effective training.

What’s in it for you?

  • Free training for staff and volunteers
  • A tried and tested evidence based training toolkit
  • A possible additional income stream
  • Access to data to support conversations with commissioners and attract ‘customers’
  • The ability to make a real difference to individuals with sight loss in health and social care settings

Training is open to all staff and volunteers of local charities. If you would like training and are unable to make any of the training sessions please contact Giulia Vitaletti on 07973 815142 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

The next session will be held on 20 September 2017 at Wiltshire Sight, Wiltshire

Followed by 3 October at The Partially Sighted Society, Doncaster
