How can we better use research & information? How can we stay in touch? Catherine Dennison, Thomas Pocklington Trust Knowledge is power. Information

is liberating. Kofi Annan Plan How have others used research

& information? How might you use the material? What additional info/ support is needed? Staying in touch Example 1

Dorset Blind Association Using NatCen findings on access to health services, wellbeing, overall health. This sense of isolation among older

visually impaired people is very real. That is why the work carried out by the Dorset Blind Association and its volunteers is so vital, a fact highlighted by their Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Holyhead.

Example 2 Emma Cruickshank, My Sight Nottinghamshire Using stats & research evidence to influence a CCG.

Cam Sight does.. Measuring outcomes Before & after questions: 1. Emotional Well-being 2. Social inclusion 3. Economic Well-being

4. Independent living How could we improve the service? Are there any particular changes in your life that have resulted from using the service? Example questions Emotional well-being

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being low and 10 high, where do you think you are at the moment in coming to terms with your sight difficulties? Social inclusion On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being low and 10 high, where do you think you are at the moment, in terms of being able to meet people and feel part of things?

Ann Streather, Cam Sight It is very helpful to be able to say to funders, this is how we measure outcomes not leave it to them to decide. Also, outside statutory bodies, the CCG, county council etc are all very

interested. Discussion What potential for using the material?
