People with sight loss invited to attend open day and free training workshop to help them get online

RNIB's Online Today project will help people with sensory loss benefit from the internet.  Blind and partially sighted people in Sefton and West Lancs are invited to attend a Technology Awareness Open Day to see how they can sign up for a free online basic skills session to help them get online and benefit from technology.

Partner organisation Galloways Society for the Blind is opening its doors to demonstrate a range of technology, including laptops, tablets and smartphones, as well as encouraging people to attend one of a series of free online basic skills sessions taking place over the coming months.

The open day takes place at Galloways Society for the Blind, 22 Wright Street, Southport, on Tuesday, 22 September 2015, from 10am to 4pm.

The Online Today workshops are then being delivered by Galloways Society for the Blind and Action for Blind People on Wednesdays on the following dates:-

► 14 October 2015 and 28 October 2015,
► 11 November 2015 and 25 November 2015,
► 9 December 2015,
► 13 January 2016 and 27 January 2016,
► 10 February 2016 and 24 February 2016.

Anyone with sight loss who lives in the Southport area is welcome to attend 1 of them. The event is part of RNIB's Online Today scheme to get 125,000 people with sensory loss online.

The session will include how to get the most from products such as tablets, smartphones and eReaders. There will also be the chance to be hands-on and try out these gadgets and ask questions.
