South West London
South West London Sight Loss Council launched in March 2023.
Our members meet monthly to discuss accessibility issues and plan projects around our national, regional, and local priority areas.
We also have London Sight Loss Council, and will soon launch South East London Sight Loss Council. We are actively taking applications in South East London, including the following boroughs: Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark. To register your interest, contact us.
“We’re really excited to be growing our Sight Loss Councils in London by forming a South West London Sight Loss Council. This will cover Croydon, Kingston, Merton, Richmond, Sutton and Wandsworth.
All Sight Loss Councils are led and supported by blind and partially sighted people, and aim to make a real impact and positive change in the local communities.”
Lucy Williams, Senior Engagement Manager (South)
Why should I volunteer?
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.
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.
“In my experience being a member of a Sight Loss Council is a great way to make a positive impact for the blind and partially sighted locally and beyond”
Haren Thillainathan, South West London SLC member
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.
