Are you blind or partially sighted and live in Bristol?

Join the Bristol Sight Loss Council visual impairment (VI) forum, on Tuesday 21st July, to share your experiences of lockdown as a visually impaired person.

Whether you are anxious about social distancing when travelling, or have faced challenges ordering your online food shop, we want to hear your concerns and your suggestions. We are working closely with Bristol Council and local health settings, to ensure local providers understand the challenges the pandemic has raised for blind and partially sighted Bristolians. We are dedicated to making positive change and giving blind people in the area a voice.  We want to hear your views to help us shape our future work.

The Bristol Sight Loss Council, funded by the charity 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.
