Mission Statement

The benefits of work are unquestionable. Employment: • keeps people challenged and active; • gives people a sense of pride, identity and personal achievement; • enables people to socialise, build connections and find support; • provides financial independence so that people are able to support themselves and explore their interests. Unemployment can have a devastating effect on people’s health. Issues include: • higher than average rates of physical and mental health problems; Yet within the sight loss community, employment rates are staggeringly low, with just one in ten people who are registered blind in work. Blind and partially sighted people have the right to work like anybody else - the opportunities just need to be unlocked. • invest in local, tailored services provided by grassroots organisations; • unlock the best technology and mobility support.

Description

We are a charity raising fund to support blind and partially sighted people live normal lives.
