The two year study involved questioning 240 blind and partially sighted adults living in London, Tyneside, the West Midlands and the Bristol area about their housing and support requirements, and talking to 90 stakeholder organisations in the four regions who were responsible for the delivery of housing and support services to visually impaired adults.
