We know that Sighted Guides are essential for some delegates. The only charge made for attendance by Sighted Guides are costs associated to accommodation, meals and refreshments.  On the booking form, this is listed as a Sight Guide Catering and Refreshments, for ease of booking.  The booking form enables you to confirm information about each Sighted Guide.  Please complete their details before adding the next delegate to ensure each Sighted Guide is connected to the correct delegate.
