Are you blind or partially sighted and unsure of what travel services are available to you in the Brighton and Hove area? If so, then come along to our ‘Accessible Travel in Brighton and Hove’ event to find out more.

This event is specifically for blind and partially sighted people interested in learning more about the different travel options available in the Brighton and Hove area, including learning about any particular services or adaptions made for blind and partially sighted travellers.

We have guest speakers from Brighton and Hove buses, Govia Thameslink and Brighton and Hove City Council sharing information about the various travel options, including buses, trains, taxis and walking, and learning about other services that may be available to you as a blind or partially sighted individual.

David Smith, the Engagement Manager South East said:

“Brighton and Hove is a busy and vibrant location. Whether you’re commuting to work, going shopping, meeting up with friends or just getting out for some exercise, it’s sometimes difficult to know, as a blind or partially sighted individual, what travel options or services are available or how to access them”

“This informal event, organised by East Sussex Sight Loss Council, is the perfect opportunity to learn, ask and perhaps influence future change”.

The event will take place in the Gat Solutions Lounge at the prestigious American Express Community Stadium, the home ground of premiership’s Brighton and Hove Albion football club. It is situated in Falmer, next to the campuses of Sussex University and the University of Brighton. The venue is fully accessible and is easy to get to either by train, bus or car.

“With refreshments on arrival, a sandwich lunch and a smart, comfortable lounge, what nicer way is there to listen, learn and engage with key representatives from local travel providers?”

Places for this event are limited, so booking early is essential to avoid disappointment.

The East Sussex Sight Loss Council (SLC) has recently launched and is the first SLC in the South East region. Sight Loss Councils are led by blind and partially sighted members, and they tackle local issues and work with businesses and service providers to improve the accessibility of their services. We are recruiting for more members, so if you’re a blind or partially sighted proactive individual with a passion for making a positive change, then consider becoming a SLC member.
