I live in sheltered housing and I'm registered blind. The council told me I'm eligible to have a carer but I don't need one, I manage by myself.
My main problem is transport, I go to a blind club every 2 weeks, it's a great social afternoon but it's difficult to get there in winter and when it's wet. A few years ago transport was provided but now there is no funding and I need to get a taxi. I know this is a problem for a lot of people, not everyone can get there in bad weather.
