Lancashire

Are you blind or partially sighted and live in Blackburn with Darwin, Blackpool, or Lancashire?

Are you interested in making a difference and influencing positive change for blind and partially sighted people?

Sight Loss Councils advocate and campaign to create a voice for visually impaired people and aim to create a more accessible world through an approach that is both proactive and solutions focussed.

Why not apply online to join our Lancashire SLC? This is a great opportunity to meet new like-minded people and to really make a difference. We will go out in to our community and tackle issues addressing inequalities across our three key themes:

  • Employment and skills
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Inclusive community

Take Action

As Sight Loss Council members, we will bring issues affecting our local community to our monthly meetings and this will define our aims, objectives and the projects we deliver.

Together with other Sight Loss Councils across the country, we will also feed into national campaigns such as our #StreetsForAll and #DistancingBlind campaigns.

We will share our lived experience and the lived experiences of our community and use this to inform and influence decision makers across all aspects of life. Some of the areas we may cover include:

  • Accessible streets and the built environment
  • Assistive technology
  • Barriers to employment and education
  • Health and social care
  • Public transport
  • Retail and hospitality
  • Sport, physical activity, leisure and the arts
  • Visual awareness

 

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.
