About Thomas Pocklington Trust

With our focus on Education, Employment and Engagement, we support blind and partially sighted people to live the life they want to lead and support grant applications that reflect our core strategy strands.

Our student support service provides information, advice and a support network for students aged 11 and over.  We support people wanting to start, restart or progress their careers.  We encourage engagement and volunteering and will continue to extend our network of Sight Loss Councils across the UK. We support families of children with vision impairment and professionals within the education service. And we provide advice and promote the adoption of accessible technology.

Our mission is to support blind and partially sighted people of all ages to live the life they want to lead.
Our values define everything we do:

Making a difference: The lives of blind and partially sighted people are better because of what we do.

Working in partnership: We work collaboratively together and with all our partners and stakeholders.

Respect: We treat people the way we would like to be treated.

Quality: We set clear goals and high standards and work efficiently and effectively to achieve them.

Participation: We place the participation of blind and partially sighted people at the heart of everything we do.


Our strategic priorities are to increase awareness and understanding of the needs and aspirations of blind and partially sighted people. We are committed to working with partners and developing and implementing activities and services which meet these needs to increase independence and improve lives. These include:

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