Welcome to Seeing Sense
Seeing Sense has extensive expertise in equipping all kinds of organisation to meet the needs of customers, service users or patients who are blind or partially sighted.
If you offer goods or services to the public, you are legally required to ensure you do not discriminate against those with little or no sight. You may not realise how many visually impaired people you serve. In the UK around one in 12 of those people aged 60 or over have serious loss of vision, so you can’t afford to ignore their needs.
