Information Pack

    The East Suffolk Association for the Blind has produced a 40 page reference document filled with helpful information for visually impaired people and their families and carers. It is essentially a reference document of information split into discrete sections as indexed below and has not been written as a book to be read from end to end. 

    In order to preserve the layout of the Information Pack we have provided it for you in Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF). Please click on the Information Pack image  below to download the file  which should open automatically for you.
