Society and technology are developing and combining like never before, opening up unforeseen opportunities for blind and visually impaired individuals to define and live the lives that they want to lead. There are a mosaic of incredible, local organisations across London that enable individuals on this journey, but sometimes finding the right organisation or the right service can be tricky.
London Vision is a newly established charity that takes a non-partisan,
ego-free, evidence-based approach to supporting, influencing, and building
capacity amongst the varied stakeholders, seeking to provide opportunities
and inspiration to blind and partially sighted Londoners.
By providing cohesive leadership and a voice for blind and partially sighted
Londoners on the issues affecting them, we can lobby those with the power
to create real and lasting change, as well as democratising access to the
latest research and information for the community-led blind and partially
sighted organisations across London.
Our approach centres around the creation of a pan-London understanding of what is
available and where the gaps are, enabling our partners to implement the
community-level changes needed to create coordinated change. Together,
we will make London more equal and inclusive, so that people with impaired
vision can take advantage of all that the UK’s capital has to offer.
We looking to build a skilled, engaged and representative board who are able to help the organisation meet the challenges it faces and to exceed our own expectations.
