Sight loss, alcohol and other drugs – get involved

Alcohol Research UK and the Thomas Pocklington Trust are funding a new research project on sight loss, alcohol and other drugs.  The project will explore possible connections between visual impairment and alcohol or other drug use and how support services respond to these overlapping issues.

The research team would like to hear from anyone who has experienced sight loss (either personally or in friends or family), or from any practitioners or carers working in this area.

The project aims to understand more about the experiences of people living with these issues and of those working or living with them.  Its purpose is to improve support for those living, and working, with sight loss and who use alcohol and other drugs.
