Are you a blind or partially sighted person in West Sussex who wants to change things? West Sussex Sight Loss Council is recruiting new members in your area.
Sight Loss Councils (SLCs), funded by Thomas Pocklington Trust, are regional groups led by blind and partially sighted volunteer members. Together, they use our lived experience to work with businesses and service providers to increase the accessibility of their services.
You will work with policy makers and local service providers to improve access for blind and partially sighted people in your local community.
You will also get the opportunity to come together with other blind and partially sighted people in your area, have a voice and develop new skills.
SLC volunteer, Clinton said: ”As a VI person myself, I am passionate in empowering blind and partially sighted people to be active within their communities through real community mindset change.”
West Sussex SLC members meet in person each month, currently in Worthing (although subject to change as membership grows). All SLC related travel expenses are paid for. For people unable to attend the in person meetings, a hybrid option can be made available.
