Greater Manchester VI forum

Are you blind or partially sighted and live in Greater Manchester?

Join the Greater Manchester Sight Loss Council visual impairment (VI) forum, on Friday 28 August, to help us understand your Covid-19 experiences and how this shapes life moving forward.

Worried about e-scooter trials in your town? or want to share examples of a supportive business getting social distancing right for visually impaired customers? We want to hear from you.

We are working closely with county councils in Greater Manchester and local health settings, to ensure local providers understand the challenges the pandemic has raised for blind and partially sighted people.

Your experiences will play a key part in shaping our work to improve life in the new normal for blind and partially sighted people.

The Greater Manchester Sight Loss Council (SLC), funded by Thomas Pocklington Trust and led by blind and partially sighted volunteers, advocates the needs, and campaigns on behalf of, blind and partially sighted people in the area.

Book your place

The VI forum is taking place via Zoom on Friday  28 August from 13:00-14:30. To book your place please email

See you there!

Covid-19 survey

Before you go, alongside the forum, we are also running a short survey  to capture your experiences of the pandemic. Your feedback will be vital in helping us campaign on the Covid-19 issues that matter to you.
