My name is Ines and I’m 33 years old; I live with my hubby in sunny Cheltenham though originally I am from Germany. I work as a team administrator for Forwards Gloucestershire, an organisation within the Gloucestershire County Council responsible for helping people with barriers to work to get into paid employment – a subject I am particularly passionate about. This is probably one of the various reasons I wanted to be a member of the Sight Loss Council.
I also enjoy staying active and fit, such as going to a gym, walking and running as well as home workouts. I have done various fundraisers through either running, walking or indoor cycling. I am part of a church community, as my Christian faith is vital to me; this is where I get support and encouragement but I also get to support and encourage others.
I wanted to join the Sight Loss Council to campaign for equality in transport, as well as in fitness and leisure, such as gyms, public swimming pools etc., and simply because I love helping and speaking up for others.
