Image of Darren CarverI am enjoying being member of the Birmingham Sight Loss Council having been involved since August 2017. I was recruited by Andrew Billingham for my technology skills as I enjoying supporting others with IT queries. I also enjoy communication technologies and support the council on social media.

Previously I worked for BT in Wolverhampton until I was made redundant about 5 years ago and have found it hard to gain employment due to my sight loss. I was diagnosed with Glaucoma about 11 years ago and in the last 18 months my vision has deteriorated which is affecting my life in a big way.

I have found it really hard to come to terms with my sight loss and have found that Andrew and the team at the Sight Loss Council have really supported me and are helping me come to terms with this.

Outside of the Sight Loss Council, I have two main hobbies which are formula one and football.
