SOUTH East London Vision is a finalist in the Charity Times Awards.

SELVis, a local sight loss charity, has been shortlisted for the Best New Charity category.

The awards, run by Charity Times Magazine, celebrate best practice in the UK charity and non-profit sector.

SELVis was established in 2014 to ensure blind and partially sighted people living in Bromley, Bexley, Greenwich, Lewisham, Lambeth and Southwark can live independently and receive high quality services relevant to their needs.

The organisation works to improve quality of life and increase independence, well being and self-determination of every person they support through the provision of peer support and social activities, and the delivery of services in partnerships with other local organisations around eye health, education and engagement.

Marsha de Cordova, Chief Executive at SELVis, said they were delighted to be shortlisted for the award.

“We have been working hard to ensure we reach as many people living with sight loss in south east London,” she said.

“We are continuing to grow and expand the range of support services we offer to meet the needs of blind and partially sighted people. It is fantastic to be recognised for our achievements.”

The Charity Times Awards will be presented at the Charity Times Awards Gala Dinner and Ceremony on September 28.

Goodluck to SELVis!
