COMMUNITY | Bulls to Form Exciting Partnership with the RNCB

An exciting new partnership between Hereford FC and the Royal National College for the Blind will see team sheets, managers notes and other club documents made accessible in braille for supporters with visual impairments.

The Royal National College based in Hereford is the leading UK Further Education College for those aged 16 plus with visual impairments and provides educational courses for around 200 students.

The partnership will see students from the college produce match reports in braille and audio formats that will help to make information about The Bulls as accessible as possible.

Hereford FC Director Andrew Graham said: “As a community club we’re delighted to form this partnership with the college who themselves are a key part of the Hereford community.

“In addition to our audio commentary service that we already provide to visually impaired fans, we’re proud to be launching this new service that will provide visually impaired supporters with specific material that will help them feel even more part of the club.

The partnership will also look to build a relationship between the first team and the college’s sports department. “In the near future our first team players will be able to take advantage of the excellent sports facilities at Point4, and also receive top-class sports massage treatment from the students” added Graham.

The Bulls will also commit to an audit of its official website with the aim to improve the sites accessibility for supporters with visual impairments.
