Global Music Visions CIC

Here at Global Music Visions C.I.C. we aim to bring the benefits of music to as many severely sight impaired (blind), sight impaired (partially sighted), and disabled children and adults as possible, by using computer music software technology.

We work alongside everyone to promote inclusivity.

We want to remove the stigma surrounding disability, break down the barriers that prevent equality and inclusion, and create new opportunities based on a person’s ability, and their ideas.

Library Services for Visually Impaired Readers

These services have gone well above and beyond the provision of large print and audio books and have been recognised nationally, receiving the Libraries Change Lives Award in 2003 and another nomination in 2015.

The aim is to provide a needs based service to increase the independence and wellbeing of adults who are blind or vision impaired. The work is led by their Vision Impairment Services Officer (who is blind), supported by library staff and volunteers. Most of the users of this service are over 16 years of age. The local authority does provide support in schools for children so most of the library work has been with adults.

Portsmouth Library and Archives have been providing additional services to people with vision impairment for over fourteen years.
