There are many ways that corporate supporters can get involved to benefit the Sight Loss Councils.

We keep overheads down by working remotely, so in each region we are seeking free venues and refreshments in accessible locations for the monthly Sight Loss Council meetings.

Each Council will have an associated Working Age Forum, an employment and networking event. For this event to be successful we need

  • sighted guiding support
  • guest speakers
  • city centre venue (close to transport links)
  • refreshments

Corporate Profile

DWF Law is a legal business, who have been operating for 40 years across 11 locations in the UK and have grown significantly internationally over last 4 years. DWF Law are values driven and want to be a good employer and show a commitment to social responsibility, which is how the relationship with the Working Age Forum (WAF) came about.

In 2018, a chance meeting between staff from the two organisations at a networking event has developed into a valuable, mutually beneficial partnership. From that meeting, DWF Law agreed to host a networking event, the WAF, providing a meeting space, refreshments and guiding support on a regular basis.

Clare Beavan at DWF Law said “We have been really happy to support the event and I believe it has been good for us as a business. The facilities team have become much more aware of what adjustments should be made for people with disabilities. Our building should always be accessible so it has been good to test the systems and processes.”

Having hosted several successful events, DWF Law and Sight Loss Councils are keen to expand the partnership encompassing our new regions to support their upcoming Working Age Forums. We look forward to seeing how the partnership grows in the future.

Corporates can also get involved by fundraising and donating to the Sight Loss Councils to support our expansion. Contact [email protected] for more information on fundraising.
