Guide Dogs NI Staff Training

Guide Dogs NI were in last week to provide training to enable all relevant staff to confidently guide blind or partially sighted participants within Springvale.

We have recently been joined by Tiernan Devine who is registered blind onto our Skills for Life and Work programme studying Computer Technology Level 1 IT Users.

Tiernan has been successful in his application to Guide Dogs NI for guide dog training and will hopefully receive his own guide dog.

Tiernan is required to prove his independent living skills to gain his dog and in conjunction with his family have agreed that Springvale is the perfect environment to do this.

We are excited to be part of his journey, therefore the best way to support him is for our staff to participate in their own personal guidance. This will help everyone to gain insight, understanding and confidence in supporting our young people.
