Participants needed for research into the effect of the pandemic on people living with a visual impairment

We are looking for volunteers aged 18+ who provide services for people living with a visual impairment to take part in this part of a study of
the effects of the pandemic on people living with a visual impairment, their caregivers and those providing low vision services to them; and how lessons learnt can inform future low vision services and support.

As a participant in this study, you would be asked to complete an online questionnaire about your experiences and views. There is an option to complete a paper version of the questionnaire (standard or large print) if required.

Your participation would involve completing the questionnaire, with the option of completing a follow-up questionnaire after 6 – 12 months.  The questionnaires would be expected to take 10 – 15 minutes.

In appreciation of your participation, you would be offered the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw for a £50.00 Love2Shop Gift Card.
