Visitors took part in various activities throughout the day, all aimed at raising awareness of vision impairment and other disabilities, encouraging them to review their own communication styles and think about how they and their colleagues would be able to support and engage with customers and service users who may have disabilities.

It was also a chance to learn more about QAC, what we do and how we can work together more closely, with some great ideas and opportunities arising as a result of the day!
