This document has been produced jointly by the ADASS Physical and Sensory Impairment and HIV/AIDS network and the ADASS Workforce Development Network. This position statement on visual impairment rehabilitation was first issued in 2011 and has been updated for re-issue. It reflects the content of the ‘Seeing it my way’ outcomes framework and the Adult UK sight loss pathway1 , both of which are core components of the UK Vision Strategy (2013-2018) published in June 2013. It also addresses concerns raised by the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), which identified a reduction in the availability of local authority rehabilitation services, and also revealed that around 25% of local authorities were not providing rehabilitation services until after a Fair Access to Care Services (FACS) assessment has been conducted2 . This position statement re-affirms the ADASS position on this issue.  (Dated 14 APRIL 2014)
