Black Country Sight Loss Council held its launch event in August 2018 at Beacon Centre in Wolverhampton. Since then, the Council has grown and is now actively participating in local projects to improve accessibility in and around the Black Country.
If you’re visually impaired, from the Black Country and are interested in advocating for blind and partially sighted people, then why not consider becoming a Sight Loss Council member?
If you are interested in finding out more information about volunteering for the Sight Loss Councils, read the Volunteer Role Description below. If you would like to apply to become a Sight Loss Council member, apply online here.
We meet once a month to discuss any accessibility issues raised by the community and plan projects under our three priority areas of Education & Skills, Inclusive Communities, and Health and Well-being.
