Concern over funding cuts for blind and partially sighted people

A charity for blind people has said cuts in funding are so bad that within 10 years there could be no support for blind or partially sighted people from their local authority.

The Royal National Institute of Blind People says that in the East there's been a 53% drop over the last 8 years in the number of people getting the most basic type of council support.

For more information about the support available to blind and partially sighted people visit the RNIB's website here.
