Staff supporting NCBI and people with sight loss

Staff supporting NCBI and people with sight loss - Crowe Ireland

As part of our 2018 CSR programme, Crowe staff have been working with NCBI to provide their support for people experiencing sight loss in Ireland.

In the weeks running up to Christmas, staff have volunteered to record a range of children’s short stories to add to the growing NCBI library. Staff choose to record a collection of short stories by Oscar Wilde and stories from “Enchanted Journeys” an anthology of fifty years of Irish writing for children.

The NCBI provides a variety of services to support people who are living with sight loss and with children being some of the most vulnerable our staff wanted to lend their support to to add to the NCBI’s library which holds a large collection of audio, large print and Braille books available.

Well done to Karl Browne and his team at NCBI for their patience in guiding our staff through the process! The sessions are still ongoing but we hope to launch the new recordings in January.
