Each student receives support of their personal and social development and residential, medical and wellbeing needs going from learning skills such as cooking, managing money and finances, taking care of their medical and personal health, washing their clothes, shopping, participating in exercise, joining social clubs or groups, preparing for a job interview and much more.

The RNC Student Union offers a wide range of activities available on and off campus where learners enjoy a lively social life with the support of their blind and partially sighted peers.
