What BBS can offer to local groups, organisations and deliverers?

  • Engagement

We offer many services that local groups, organisations and deliverers can take advantage of. Our educational resources have been set up to provide sport deliverers the confidence in working with visually impaired people. We are also involved in sports development projects to overcome barriers that may prevent VI people from achieving an active lifestyle. We have also established and supported VI Forums that bring together local stakeholders and involve sporting organisations and importantly sight loss charities, sensory support services and activity providers.

  • Local Delivery

BBS Manchester RH 220717 114We coordinate sports taster days across the country to encourage VI participants to be active and increase awareness of local opportunities. These events are coordinated with local partners, which include County Sport Partnerships, as well as sporting and non-sporting organisations. We also host and oversee over 80 training days, competitions and events a year.  These are mainly led and delivered by volunteers who are often visually impaired BBS members, in partnership with organisations

  • Research and Insight

BBS can provide bespoke insight about the VI community and we are at the forefront of developing research and insight into VI sport participation. We use this information to develop our services and projects, and in turn share data to assist partner organisations to do the same.

  • Marketing and Communications

BBS provides an extensive database of the UK’s sporting opportunities for blind and partially sighted people which allows us to provide an information and advocacy service.  We also offer assistance and advice to organisations and activity leaders when it comes to ensuring all promotional and marketing materials are VI accessible, including activity leaflets for local VI sporting opportunities.
