Although they represent an increasing part of the population, visually impaired (VI) seniors are one of the most marginalised communities in terms of lifelong learning. This is a clear obstacle to their active involvement in society. This is why British and Dutch experts on visual impairment and older age developped a VISAL training course tailor-made to both the age- and disability-related specific learning needs of elderly VI persons. The course was experimented in Austria, Croatia, Slovakia and the UK, and has later been implemented in France, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Portugal.

Information on the project is available in  Austrian (German language), Slovakian, Croatian and Dutch.
