HOW TO GUIDE A BLIND PERSON....
Below is a link showing how to guide a VI person it will help our new guides, also well practiced members and also VI's. It is by Amar Latif who founded the company Traveleyes which specialises in holidays for VI's. I think it is extremely good, so perhaps members would like to take a look.
We are currently sorting a training day for new members and anyone who has already had training but would like a refresher. Thanks Gail
