VISE PROJECT
SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESSES RUN BY PEOPLE
WHO ARE VISION IMPAIRED


Originally funded jointly by UnLtd, the Millennium Awards Scheme, and my own business, this project aims to provide support to people who are vision impaired and are running their own small businesses.  Its particular objective is to help these people to move their businesses into conventional viability.

The VISE service offers such businesses support, mentoring and business advise, all delivered in the context of their disability and their individual circumstances.  The prime means of contact is via telephone and email, although face to face meetings may be provided in certain cases.  This service thus offers to people who are vision impaired and who choose self-employment something very close to the supported employment model used extensively in conventional employment.

Although any and all aspects of running a small business may be addressed, some of the more likely ones are:
All support which is provided through the VISE project is absolutely free to the vision impaired person.  Whilst this support may sometimes lead to a need for some chargeable support, no charge will be incurred without prior notification;  sources of funding may be available to cover any such charges.

If you are interested in taking advantage of the VISE support service, please contact me by telephone or email.

Please note that the VISE project is finished, but that all services which were provided through VISE are now available through the UKSEABLE project.  Please click here to find out more about UKSEABLE.
