    Hi @marvyb and welcome to the community, glad you've joined us :) 

    We have many visually impaired members, you might find some useful discussions over on our visual impairment category and likewise on our employment and careers category. Or feel free to create a discussion on those sections if there isn't much relevant to you already there.

    I'm visually impaired myself, and I understand how you must feel, the world of employment can be a very tricky one to navigate, but I'm certain you will have skills and knowledge that you would be able to offer many employers. 

    Scope have a Support to Work programme which might be something that takes your interest, I'd certainly recommend having a read about it. 

    If you need any help navigating the community or if anything doesn't make sense, always feel free to ask, and again I wish you a very warm welcome to the community :)

    HI @marvyb - & welcome to the community, Marvalyn. I'm sorry you've had a bad experience in seeking work. As Ross has suggested, do try Scope's .Support to Work' programme, as people have said it's very helpful. Do also have a look around the forum, & join in with the discussions. I hope to see you around. :)

    Hi and welcome from me too , I am sight impaired and also other disabilities which prevent me from working 

    But I must admit I have thought about what work could be available for the visually impaired but know there are lots who are in employment

    You might find the job centre useful as they sometimes have disability coaches also dot know of the RNIB can offer some advice

    Far from it @marvyb :) 

    This is a very supportive and helpful community. I hope to see you getting involved in discussions going forward and hopefully our wonderful members can help with your situation.

    The coffee lounge is always a great place to go if you fancy a chat about fun, light hearted topics. At the moment, we have discussions going on about everything from chocolate and music, to squirrels and football.
