Thomas Pocklington Trust: Research on the costs of living with vision impairment

5 May 2016

Thomas Pocklington Trust have commissioned Loughborough University to find out about the financial costs that sight loss brings to a household.
We are keen to find people to take part in forthcoming focus groups to discuss the sorts of goods and services that people who are vision impaired need and how much these things might cost.

We know from our previous research that people who are vision impaired have a wide range of needs, but for this research we are looking for people who are:

  • Aged 65 and over and are severely sight impaired, with little or no sight and have acquired sight loss in adulthood or later life.

The focus groups are being held in Birmingham, Bristol and Leicester during June 2016.  People who take part will receive a payment to thank them for their time and cover expenses. Everything discussed in the group is kept confidential.

If you are interested in attending the focus group or would like further information please contact Lisa Jones at the Centre for Research in Social Policy, Loughborough University, by:
