Mandy WhiteMandy White is the subject lead for Braille.

I started work for RNIB as a volunteer in 1989. I have had many different roles within RNIB but they have all been focussed around Accessible Information. I work as a project manager and became involved more closely with braille when I was asked to co-ordinate RNIB’s activity around the celebration of Louis Braille’s bicentenary in 2009. In 2010 I was asked to set up the braille subject area within UKAAF and have been lucky enough to recruit a range of very committed, knowledgeable and enthusiastic members of the different working groups. We have achieved a lot in the past few years particularly with respect to the implementation, in the UK, of the new Unified English Braille code (UEB).
