We are looking for adult, visually impaired women to volunteer to talk about their experiences with violence and their everyday safety concerns. You do not necessarily have to have been victimized to take part – we are looking for a range of voices.


As a participant in this study, you will be asked to take part in a small focus group with about 6-8 other visually impaired women that will last approximately 90 minutes.


In appreciation for your time, we will provide you with a FREE self-defence workshop for blind/partially-sighted women.


For more information about this study, or to volunteer,


please contact:
