This report presents a summary of data collected through 1007 interviews with visually impaired people in Great Britain. The interviews were carried out between spring 2005 and spring 2006. The research has been carried out by the Visual Impairment Centre for Teaching and Research (VICTAR) within the University of Birmingham in partnership with VISION 2020 UK and was funded by the Big Lottery Fund. Each telephone interview took an average of 40 minutes and was carried out by researchers within VICTAR. The project forms one of the biggest surveys of its kind ever undertaken and the first survey to be conducted with major sector wide involvement.
