Supplementary Information

We’ve now moved our Moderation Policy, Useful Commands and Mobile Phone Contact Instructions and Call Resources to their own pages.

Please note, the health and safety of all of our members, board and friends is always our top priority and we will not be holding any public face to face Braillists meetings or events until further notice. The Braillists Foundation will continue to monitor the situation and follow public health advice accordingly.

Other Pages

We have some Advice, External Resources and Information for Others on separate pages. We also recommend you look at our new Braille Resources.
