Our mission is support blind and partially sighted people to live the life they want to lead. One of the ways we will achieve this is through our engagement work.
Our regional Engagement Managers are establishing a network of Sight Loss Councils across England. The councils, made up of volunteers who are all blind and partially sighted, tackle local issues in priority areas such as education, employment, technology, transport, health and social care, sport and leisure
They make a positive impact for blind and partially sighted people in their areas.
We currently have Sight Loss Councils set up and running in Birmingham, the Black Country, Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Bristol and Gloucestershire and plans to establish more over the coming months and years. Find out more. Visit the Sight Loss Councils website
In addition to regular consultation and the work of Sight Loss Council members, we also hold regular VI Forums. This gives blind and partially sighted people the chance to have their voices heard and highlight the challenges and issues they face in accessing services and opportunities within their region. Visit the Sight Loss Councils for forthcoming dates of VI Forums.
Volunteering can open up a world of opportunities both for individuals and businesses. Find out more on becoming a volunteer and our corporate volunteering opportunities.
