Question and answer
what percentage of the general population is likely to have sensory loss
There are certain things which we all take for granted, little things that we do on a daily basis without even thinking. This could be driving to work, walking down a busy street or just chatting on the phone. [ These may seem small and insignificant but to those with sensory problems these tasks pose immense difficulties or are simply impossible. Thousands of people up and down Wales suffer
from some kind of sensory loss and they deserve the support to enable them to live an independent and happy life, but unfortunately this isn’t always happening. Statistics from the RNIB paint a sad picture about the struggles of people with sight loss. For instance: People with sight loss are three times more likely to suffer from mental health problems such as depression. The unemployment rate is 33% amongst visually impaired people, higher than the general working population. This means that levels of poverty and deprivation are also higher. 10,000 people with sight loss in Wales never go out alone. They’re not living a happy and independent life. ]
