A research report, supported by MyVision Oxfordshire, has been launched.

The report presents findings from a large research project which delves into the current utilisation of green and blue spaces by blind and partially sighted people.  The research also explores the extent to which existing physical and social access opportunities align with the needs and preferences  of blind and partially sighted people.  The final report identifies the barriers and enablers that impact access to green and blue spaces along with outlining key areas that could create and develop equitable and sustainable access to green and blue spaces blind and partially sighted people and other disabilities.
