Introducing the Bristol Sight Loss Council

Are you interested in improving the lives of blind and partially sighted people in Bristol?

We are launching the Bristol Sight Loss Council following the success of other Sight Loss Council across the country.  

What is a Sight Loss Council?

Sight Loss Councils are made up of volunteers who themselves are blind or partially sighted. Members work to tackle local issues, working with public, private and voluntary organisations to improve and support their services and make them more accessible.

We believe blind and partially sighted people are best suited to work with organisations to enable them to better understand the needs  and improve the lives of people with sight loss.

Launch Event

We are holding an event to launch the Sight Loss Council in Bristol on Thursday 28th March 2019 from 11.00 am to 2.00 pm. Lunch is included. The venue is The Southville Centre, Beauley Road, Bristol, BS3 1QG

Are you the kind of person we are looking for?

We need people who have:

  • An interest in the issues that affect people with sight loss
  • A desire to advocate about issues of common concern
  • Excellent communication skills
  • A track record of being reliable, punctual and committed
  • The ability to work independently and as part of a team
  • Over 18 years old
