As we get older and partners pass away loneliness and isolation can hit. For people with sight loss, that isolation is all the more painful to bear.
It''s not just about losing other people though, it's also about being isolated inside yourself, unable to carry out tasks such as going to the shops or even pick up a phone to speak to a friendly voice. For those who can't see, it often leads to losing your self-belief, and, even worse your sense of belonging.
With this film we wanted to show the reality of isolation for many of our blind veterans and the transformational impact of our volunteers on their lives.
