This small and supportive group meet each week to learn Braille – a raised-paper language that people with sight or dual sensory loss use to read books; label and write letters.

You will be taught by those who have already learned the skill and you can follow that up with a self-teaching system developed by RNIB. They average seven people a week, supported occasionally by a specialist worker. Members have a wide range of sight conditions and come from a varied age range. Working guide dogs are present every week. The group is financed by Sensory Support, part of Peterborough City Council, Adult Social Care.

If you would like more information or to join the group, please contact 01733 747 474 and ask for a call back from one of the rehabilitation workers in the Sensory Support Team (Adult Social Care) or email: adultsocialcare@peterborough.gcsx.gov.uk
