British Blind Sport is pleased to announce the launch of their Activity Finder, which is now live at http://www.britishblindsport.org.uk/activity-finder!
The BBS Activity Finder is a new and innovative way for blind and partially sighted people, family members and professionals to search for VI-friendly clubs and community groups across the United Kingdom.
British Blind Sport has been working over the last year to ensure that the database is comprehensive and covers over 30 different sports and physical activities. To date there are around 1000 opportunities listed on the Activity Finder database across the United Kingdom, with more to come.
BBS hope that the Activity Finder can help other organisations and sight loss associations working with the VI community to more easily and efficiently be able to answer queries around sports and physical activities and that it will be a universally helpful tool for anyone working with blind and partially sighted people.
National Partnerships Manager Logan Gray said, “At BBS we are very excited to finally be launching the Activity Finder in January! We know from our research that there are a number of additional barriers for VI people to increase their activity levels, awareness (knowing where to find activities) is one of them. We’ve worked hard to register over 1000 clubs on the Activity Finder so we can share this information publically with our members and the wider sight loss community in a fully accessible format. Now, everyone can more easily find inclusive, positive opportunities there are out there.”
