Dear Reader,

Happy National Braille Week! We're sending you this extra newsletter as we have an exciting announcement to share:

We are thrilled to announce that we are now accepting registrations for our third "Braille for Beginners" course, which will take place over eight Tuesdays at 6:00 PM starting on 11 January 2022. This innovative and accessible programme will equip blind and partially sighted adults with the skills to read and write braille letters, numbers and punctuation, promoting unparalleled levels of independence and raising their confidence and self-esteem.

Dave Williams, our Chairman and himself blind since birth, said: "For me, there is no greater privilege than being able to read bedtime stories to my son. Without braille, I'm certain I would not be able to do this. I'm therefore delighted that we are able to mark National Braille Week at the Braillists by unlocking the world of reading by touch for so many people who have never had the opportunity before."

The course, which will take place on Zoom with a telephone dial-in option for those with limited or no access to the internet, will be delivered by a highly qualified tutor with extensive experience of teaching braille to adults who are losing their sight, and is offered at no charge. Required resources will be provided by post or download, and peer support and 1:1 assistance from the tutor will be available by email between sessions.

Further details and the registration form can be found at www.braillists.org/beginners

You are very welcome to share this announcement widely, and we look forward to seeing some of you in January.
