North London

North London Sight Loss Council formed in January 2021.

We work to advocate the needs of blind and partially sighted people and influence positive change across the capital.

Our members meet monthly to discuss accessibility issues and plan projects around our national, regional, and local priority areas. We are working to increase the accessibility of public transport, the built environment, and health services across the capital.

She has a flowery top on.“I wanted to volunteer as a Sight Loss Council (SLC) member so that I could use my lived experience of sight loss to make a positive difference to the lives of others.

“I am immensely proud to be part of North London SLC. SLCs and Thomas Pocklington Trust really do put bind and partially sighted people at the heart of all that they do. This is very empowering for me.

“I love working collaboratively with other members and always feel supported by them.  I have learned so much in my role, and I would encourage anyone thinking of joining to go for it. It is a great opportunity to meet like-minded people, but be part of creating a more equal and inclusive world for people with sight loss.”
