Read our volunteer role description and apply to join East Sussex Sight Loss Council
As Sight Loss Council members, you will bring issues affecting you and your community to our monthly meetings and this will define our projects.
Along with other Sight Loss Councils across the country, we’ll also feed into national campaigns such as our #StreetsForAll campaign.
We will go out into our community and meet politicians, business leaders and decision-makers and tell them our stories. Through our lived experience of visual impairment, we can help others understand the barriers blind and partially sighted people face and advocate for a more accessible world.
Training and development
It’s really important to us that you get as much as possible out of volunteering. You’ll receive relevant training and the opportunity to learn and/or enhance your skills. Whether you’re interested in public speaking or honing your social media skills, there’s something for everyone to get involved in.
