Brian Gaff

“Well it’s difficult isn’t it because you don’t know you’re visually impaired until you compare with other people what they can see. But you just absorb it when you’re young don’t you, you don’t know you’re learning do you, if you’re interested?”

Brian Gaff is a prominent member of Kingston’s blind and partially sighted community. He’s on Kingston Association for the Blind’s committee, and leads on producing the town’s Talking Newspaper. This weekly audio newspaper enables local people with visual impairments to stay up to date with current affairs, both within Kingston and nationally.
