VISAL - Visually Impaired Seniors Active Learning

Although they represent an increasing part of the population, visually impaired (VI) seniors are one of the most marginalised communities in terms of lifelong learning. This is a clear obstacle to their active involvement in society. This is why British and Dutch experts on visual impairment and older age will develop a VISAL non-formal training course tailor-made to both the age-related and disability-related specific learning needs of elderly VI persons. The course will be experimented in Austria, Croatia, Slovakia and the UK.
