Pilot evaluation for housing brokerage for younger adults with visual impairment



Thomas Pocklington TrustThe findings of an innovative pilot housing brokerage service for younger adults with visual impairment will be launched next month by sight loss charity Thomas Pocklington Trust (TPT) and Housing Options Scotland (HOS).

The event in Edinburgh will set out how HOS provided the pilot housing brokerage service, which was funded by TPT, across Scotland, and the evaluation of this service.

Members of the housing, volunteering, and eye health and sight loss sectors are welcome to attend the event to hear about how the innovative service was run and the positive impact it had for service users, including a short video featuring a younger person who has benefited from this approach.

It will also showcase a housing information and advice guide specifically aimed at younger adults with visual impairment that has been developed by TPT.

The free event will be held on March 9 at the Caledonian Hall, Edinburgh Royal Botanic Gardens, 20A Inverleith Row, Edinburgh, EH3 5LR from 10am until 2pm, including lunch.
