Innovation in Lambeth with presenters web.jpg


Winner: Patrick Roberts

Patrick from South East London Vision is making a difference to the lives of blind and partially sighted people in Lambeth by piloting technology training courses at job centre plus. Patrick is taking a leading role by working in partnership with Job Centre Plus Streatham and Streatham Tate Library.  Together they have come up with a ground-breaking scheme to support and prepare visually impaired people of Lambeth for work.

Patrick delivers an amazing training course on basic keyboard touch-typing skills, preparing a CV and a cover letter for visually people when applying for jobs.

The completion of the training is not the end of support available.  The visually impaired person will be encouraged to continue to improve their skills and possibly become a mentor themselves.
