Drop in sessions

You can come to our Duty Time Drop-in on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the RNIB, 10 Stillhouse Lane, Bedminster, Bristol, BS3 4EB from 11.30am to 1.30pm every week.

If you have a sensory impairment you can come to us for support with any problems you have.

It's a first come first served service, and you'll have 20 minutes of our time. If any issue cannot be resolved within this time, we'll arrange for more outreach support.
