Greater Manchester

Greater Manchester Sight Loss Council launched in March 2020. Since then, the council has brought together blind and partially sighted volunteers from across the region. Together they advocate for the needs of visually impaired people in the area.

We meet once a month to discuss any accessibility issues raised by the community. We plan our projects under our three key priority areas of Employment and Skills, Health and Well-being and Inclusive Communities

Why should I volunteer?

Please note that we are not currently taking applications for Greater Manchester Sight Loss Council.

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.

Join us

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.
