Thank you to RNIB for awarding initial funding from the Elizabeth Eagle-Bott Memorial Fund for Sound Without Sight to develop our community hub, ready for launch later this year.
We are very appreciative of Creative United’s support in helping Sound Without Sight to grow within the arts sector.
Technology Association of Visually Impaired People (TAVIP)
We owe big thanks to TAVIP, who have agreed to host the project until it grows to the point of being able to sustain itself.
If there are common goals between our project and yours, please get in touch and we would be more than happy to explore how we can maximise synergy. We are looking to complement and join up existing resources, not reinvent the wheel!
As ‘Sound Without Sight’ is a new project, and our team members are currently contributing their time voluntarily, we are seeking funding and collaboration opportunities to bring our idea to life with the polish and scale that it deserves.
