Thomas Pocklington Trust’s new strategy will bring new opportunities for volunteers to engage with!

Thomas Pocklington Trust has recently completed a strategic review involving a wide range of stakeholders. The review set out to provide clarity and focus with regards to our purpose, who we will support, services provided, how we will be organised to provide these services, the governance supporting our activities and the funding strategy.

Our redefined focus will be on:

  • Acting as an advocate and positive change agent for blind and partially sighted people
  • Creating opportunities for blind and partially sighted people seeking employment
  • Facilitating the voice and encouraging self-determination of blind and partially sighted people
  • Enabling opportunities for blind and partially sighted people to enter education

Our priorities will be; Education, Employment and Engagement, providing support to blind and partially sighted children, young people and their families, and adults of working age.

This new strategic direction will mean that new volunteering opportunities will be developed over the coming months and years, so watch this space for more information.
