Iain Mitchell is the Senior Engagement Manager for North England. He has worked at Thomas Pocklington Trust for over five years. South Yorkshire SLC is his sixth SLC launch.
Iain has been visually impaired since birth, born with Albinism, Nystagmus and photo sensitivity. Like many others, he wants to use his lived experience to create positive change.
Originally from Liverpool. Iain was previously the Engagement Manager for North West England. When the opportunity came along to manage Yorkshire and Humberside, he jumped at the chance to return having fallen in love with the area as a university student.
Iain has two lovely rescue dogs and enjoys walking them and the unconditional love they provide. He enjoys performance of all types and his speciality subject in quizzes is history! However, he says his real Achilles Heel is his love for Liverpool FC
Iain says: “We welcome everyone with a visual impairment to join us in the work we do. We want to raise awareness and influence change to help blind and partially sighted people to live the lives they want to lead.”
