Be Active by Bradbury Fieldswww.rnib.org.uk/sdawards/national-finalists
Bradbury Fields started Be Active in 2015 to tackle social isolation and loneliness for blind and partially sighted people in and around Liverpool. Be Active is a programme that organises group activities for people with sight loss who struggle to leave their house independently, including walking, tandem cycling, swimming lessons and dance classes. Jamal Abdullah, the Programme Coordinator, leads a team of dedicated volunteers who act as personal guides and advocates for their beneficiaries, helping them build confidence and build friendships while staying active. The programme has notably impacted the lives of blind and partially sighted people in the Liverpool area, as more than 200 people have received assistance from the organisation just this year.
