London Vision’s May Working Age Forum is changing locations to the Houses of Parliament Estate.

Marsha de Cordova MP, the Shadow Minister for Disabled People, is hosting the forum on Wednesday 9th May and will be talking about life as a visually impaired Member of Parliament, almost one year after being elected as the MP for Battersea.

Marsha visited the London Working Age Forum and talked about her journey towards securing her seat in Parliament after she was elected last year.

Before being elected, Marsha was the Director or Engagement and Advocacy here at Thomas Pocklington Trust, while also being a councillor for the London Borough of Lambeth and an active member of her community.

Alex Pepper, Networks Manager for London Vision, said: “This event will be a fantastic opportunity to speak face-to-face with someone who has achieved great success in a short space of time, and has not let sight loss dictate her life choices.”

The event is on Wednesday 9th May from 6-8pm at The Houses of Parliament Estate.

The event is expected to be popular and limited spaces are available so reserve your place by emailing

Assistance can be provided from Westminster tube station for those who need it so please include any assistance requirements when you register.
