Lord Blunkett visits Westlea Centre

On Friday 22nd October Lord Blunkett visited Westlea Centre where he met with Staff and members of the EYECAN committee.
Lord Blunkett was shown around the centre and there was a discussion about provision in place for Islanders with a sight impairment and the differences between Jersey and mainland UK.
Lord Blunkett spoke to the community team in the EYECAN Demonstration Room about the various aids and gadgets available. He was interested to learn more about speech options on his iPhone and even took away a signature guide to help him sign in the right place.
It was a privilege to welcome him to Westlea and interesting for all involved.
