About the event
Provided by Guide Dogs Connections Services, entirely designed and delivered by people who a blind or who have low vision, this Chatter Paws miniseries will be a safe and supportive space to explore the emotions and experiences that come with losing vision.
This three-part miniseries will be facilitated by three people who have lived their own experience of vision loss. They will start conversations on normalising the process of grief, adjustment and acceptance.
The discussion will then shift to talking to friends and family about vision loss.
The miniseries will be an open and interactive discussion, with a focus on supporting one another through the sharing of experiences.
All sessions will be held over Zoom. You can attend all three sessions, or just those that interest you most.
