The recently launched West Sussex Sight Loss Council is looking for volunteers to be members. Volunteers will work with policy makers and local service providers to improve access for blind and partially sighted people in their local community. It is also a great opportunity to come together with other blind and partially sighted people in the area. This is your chance to gain advocacy skills and influence positive change.
David Smith, Engagement Manager (South East), says: “We’re excited to have launched our Sight Loss Council in West Sussex.
“Like the other SLCs, we will be working across the county and engaging with organisations from both the public and private sector. We will be working with service providers to raise their awareness of the daily challenges and barriers blind and partially sighted people face.
“If you have a vision impairment, live in West Sussex and are passionate about improving services for blind and partially sighted people, then please consider becoming a Sight Loss Council volunteer.”
