British Blind Sport has announced the launch of a new guide for vision rehabilitation workers who support blind and partially sighted adults through physical activity. The resource was created in collaboration with British Blind Sport, Rehabilitation Workers Professional Network, Visionary, Metro Blind Sport, The Wilberforce Trust and North-East Sensory Services.
The guide includes an accessible resource and activity cards containing a variety of low-intensity workouts that can be shared with clients and safely performed in their own homes or local outdoor spaces. The exercises have been designed to help individuals develop strength, flexibility, cardiovascular capacity, and balance; all of which can improve a person’s confidence, mobility and independence.
