Tyne and Wear
Our Tyne and Wear Sight Loss Council launched in January 2021.
If you are blind and partially sighted, live in Tyne and Wear and interested in advocating for visually impaired people, we want to hear from you!

Why should I join?
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, our monthly meetings will be held virtually for now. Be an advocate from your home and work with policy makers and local service providers to improve access for blind and partially sighted people in the area.
