Help us change your local area for people with sight loss.

Sight Loss Councils are being established across the UK to help improve the lives of blind and partially sighted people.

Sight Loss Councils are made up of volunteers, who are blind and partially sighted. Our members tackle local issues that affect people with visual impairments, working with public, private and voluntary organisations to improve the accessibility of their services.
