About the conference

Although we are so sad that we will not be together in person this year, we hope that our calendar of online conference events and workshops will still provide the opportunities for sharing, connecting with peers and personal and organisational development that the Visionary annual conference has become renowned for over the past 10 years.

This year’s online conference is free for Visionary members and partners. Please also encourage staff from across your organisation to join any of the conference sessions. There is no limit to the number of staff and trustees that can attend from Visionary member organisations. If you do not work for a Visionary member or partner organisation, contact us to enquire about securing a place.

We have designed the conference calendar to provide a range of bite-sized opportunities. You are welcome to attend all sessions over the three days or create your own agenda by just dipping in and out of selected sessions as suits you. Just let us know when you register and you will receive a personal email with details of how to join the sessions you have selected in advance of the conference.

We have secured an exciting range of external facilitators and experts that we hope will inspire you and facilitate connections and development. Yes it’s virtual this year but there will still be an awards ceremony, there will still be networking, there will still be the national sight loss organisation’s CEO panel and there will still be a diverse range of workshops!

If you have any questions or need more information about the conference, please email Visionary.

Call for nominations for the Visionary Annual Awards 2020

The Visionary Annual Awards aim to recognise and celebrate the impactful services delivered by sight loss charities and the positive difference you make to the lives of blind and partially sighted people. Highlighting the achievements of local charities helps share good practice across the sector and draws attention to the talent, expertise and impact of the local sight loss sector. The awards are open to Visionary members and some are open to our national partners. You can nominate your own organisation or another that you believe deserves recognition by completing this short nomination form by 2 November, 12pm midday in one of four categories:

  1. Connect award
  2. Develop award
  3. Share award
  4. National partner award


All Visionary members and partners will have the opportunity to vote for their winners who will be announced at the Visionary Annual Conference on Friday 20 November. Winners will each receive £500, a trophy and branded electronic PR resources.
