South West London

South West London Sight Loss Council (SLC) launched in March 2023.

Our members meet monthly to discuss accessibility issues and plan projects around our national, regional, and local priority areas. Locally, SLC members are working to #MakeRetailAccessible.

Since its inception, South West London SLC has been incredibly active and also gained membership in Kingston on Thames. Members have got fully involved in a variety of campaigns and activities.
