West Sussex Sight Loss Council launched in March 2023. If you are blind or partially sighted and live in the area, we need you.
“We’re excited to have launched our second Sight Loss Council in West Sussex.
Like the other SLCs, we will be working across the county and engaging with organisations from both the public and private sector. We will be working with service providers to raise their awareness of the daily challenges and barriers blind and partially sighted people face.
If you have a vision impairment, live in West Sussex and are passionate about improving services for blind and partially sighted people, then please consider becoming a Sight Loss Council volunteer.”
David Smith, Engagement Manager (South East)
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.
” As a VI person myself, I am passionate in empowering blind and partially sighted people to be active within their communities through real community mindset change.”
Clinton Corin, West Sussex Sight Loss Council
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.
