People with sight loss in
Southport invited to attend free online skills session
RNIB's Online Today project will help
people with sensory loss get online. Blind and partially sighted people in
Southport are invited to attend a free online basic skills session to help them

The event is part of RNIB's Online Today scheme to get 125,000 people with
sensory loss online.
The workshop is being delivered by partner organisation Action for Blind People,
at Galloway's Southport, 22 Wright Street, Southport, Merseyside, on Wednesday, 13

Internet use in the UK has significantly increased over recent years with 76% of
adults accessing the internet every day in 2014, compared to just 38% in 2006.
Millions of us rely on the internet for everyday tasks such as shopping, banking
and staying in touch with friends and family. However, getting online and using
technology can present many challenges for someone who is blind, partially
sighted or has hearing loss.
Andrew Coleman, Assistive Technology Coordinator at Action for Blind People,
said:- "Being online can make a huge difference to someone's life. We hope
people with sight or hearing loss in Southport will come along and find out how
technology can open up a whole new world of discovery and independence."
