Delivering positive change for blind and partially sighted people through engagement.
Thomas Pocklington Trust’s mission is to enable and empower blind and partially sighted people of all ages to live the life they want to lead.
One of the ways we will achieve this mission 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 work with public, private and voluntary organisations to improve the accessibility of their services to 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 and Bristol with plans to establish more Sight Loss Councils over the coming months and years.
