Bedfordshire Sight Loss Council launched in February 2021.
We meet once a month in Central Bedford. These meetings allow us to get together to discuss the progress of our current projects, identify future engagement and work opportunities, and have a social catch up with tea, coffee and biscuits too.
We are currently looking for new members to join us, If you are blind or partially sighted and live in the area, we need you.
“We are really excited to continue our work at Bedfordshire Sight Loss Council.
We will be working and engaging with local sight loss organisations, goods, and service providers, to raise awareness of the daily challenges blind and partially sighted people face in the county.
“We are actively seeking new members to join our team. If you are blind or partially sighted and live in Bedfordshire and want to be a voice for blind and partially sighted people in your local area, this role could be for you.”
Samantha Leftwich, Engagement Manager for East England
Why should I volunteer?
If you want to make a real difference in your local area on the issues that affect blind and partially sighted people, joining our Sight loss Council could be the perfect volunteering opportunity for you.
You will work with policy makers and local service providers to improve access for blind and partially sighted people in your local community. It is also a great opportunity to come together with other blind and partially sighted people in your area.
This is your chance to develop your skills and influence positive change.
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.
