New online tool to help people with visual impairments get active

British Blind Sport has launched a new interactive tool to help people who are blind or partially sighted find activities in their area.

Using its online activity finder you can find details of inclusive clubs and organisations across the country, offering over 30 different sports and activities for people with a visual impairment, from angling to yoga.

British Blind Sport is the national disability sport organisation that represents visually impaired people in sport across the UK. The charity helps blind and partially sighted people get active and play sport, which can enhance their lives by improving their health and increasing their social interaction.

It's hoped that the activity finder can help organisations and sight loss associations working with the VI community to answer queries around sports and physical activities, and that it will be a useful tool for anyone working with blind and partially sighted people.

You can find the activity finder at britishblindsport.org.uk/activity-finder/
