Interview with Liz Ball, deaf-blind charity worker


The Guardian’s website has an excellent interview with Liz Ball, a deaf-blind charity worker. Liz was born partially sighted and registered as blind at the age of 10. She lost her hearing when she was 26. She’s now 30 and works for the Sense charity as their parliamentary campaigns officer.

She talks warmly about the things she enjoys but also of some of the frustrations and problems she faces.

She says:

It would be very good if more people were aware that a red and white cane means the person using it is deaf-blind. And that their attention is best got by touching their shoulder.
