Get involved in our Sight Loss Council campaigns which push for a society where blind and partially sighted people have the same access to goods and services as everybody else.
We aim to represent the views of blind and partially sighted people in our local communities and influence positive change at a local and national level.
Our #MakeHealthAccessible campaign aims to see the Accessible Information Standard applied and understood universally throughout England. Get involved in our campaign by writing to your local GP surgery using our template letter for GP surgeries.
Our #DistancingBlind campaign highlighted the challenges blind and partially sighted people face in socially distancing and provided some guidelines for local transport providers and businesses to highlight what measures they could put in place to help blind and partially sighted people social distance.
Our #StreetsForAll campaign focuses on making our streets accessible for everyone. The issues include the fast and silent e-scooters which are putting blind and partially sighted people at risk; Cars parked on pavements force people to step into the road, risking injury from potential oncoming traffic; Chairs and tables outside restaurants, A-Boards and overhanging bushes are all obstacles to avoid, and again, often force pedestrians onto the carriageway.
