Purple Tuesday 2019

In November last year, we took part in Purple Tuesday. We had a stall at St John’s Precinct, where members of the public tried simulation specs to raise awareness of the various eye conditions partially sighted people experience.

Accessibility workshops with Apple

We teamed up with the Apple store in Liverpool to run accessibility workshops to help blind and partially sighted people use Apple devices.
