In February we were approached by BAE Systems, who are developing a range of wearable, hand held assistive technology products to enable people with visual impairments to sense the environment around them.

The team from BAE Systems attended our SocialEYES meeting to discuss some of the products in development and to gain feedback on their effectiveness.

A working group has now been set up to continue this partnership with BAE Systems.

The next meeting is on Friday 29th March 2019 at Sight Support HEY from 12:30pm - 1.30pm.

Anyone wishing to be involved with this project, should contact us on 01482 342297 or email
