The Greater Manchester Sight Loss Council was launched in March 2020. The council has brought together blind and partially sighted volunteers from across the region to advocate for the needs of visually impaired people in the area.
Each volunteer has chosen a priority area to focus on from our themes of education, employment, Health and social care, Sport and Leisure, Transport and Technology.
If you’re visually impaired, from Greater Manchester and 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 and fill in our short expression of interest form. If you would like to apply to become a Sight Loss Council member, apply online.
We meet once a month to discuss any accessibility issues raised by the community and plan projects under our six themes of Education, Employment, Health, Technology, Transport and sport.
