Talking News

The Talking News is a free service which is produced each week for people living with sight loss to help them keep in touch with their community.

In the wake of the Coronavirus outbreak we believe this service has never been more needed with many more people now isolated in their own homes and having little contact with the outside world.

We are reliant on donations to help cover our production costs and if you are able to make a donation it could help us to continue to provide this vital service in this time of crisis.
