Research into the Impact of Reading on the Lives of Blind and Partially Sighted Adults.
The RNIB have commissioned The Reading Agency and LISU at Loughborough University to carry out important new research into the impact of reading for pleasure on the lives of blind and partially sighted adults.
As part of this research, they would like to recruit blind and partially sighted people willing to take part in short face to face or telephone interviews. They are particularly keen to visit places where there are groups of blind and partially sighted adults already meeting, e.g. reading groups, groups meeting in day or community centres or people coming together informally at specific times. Each interview will last approximately 30 minutes.
If you are a member of such a group, know of a group who may be interested or would yourself like to be involved in this research about reading please contact Rachel Spacey at LISU by email: R.E.Spacey@Lboro.ac.uk by May 31st 2012.
Interviews will need to be completed by the end of June 2012.
An accessible on-line survey will also be available for completion on the Loughborough University website. Please contact Rachel Spacey for more information.
