Join the Greater Manchester and Merseyside Sight Loss Councils (SLCs) visual impairment (VI) forums in August and September, 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 county councils in Greater Manchester and Merseyside as well as local health settings, to ensure local providers understand the challenges the pandemic has raised for blind and partially sighted people in Greater Manchester and Merseyside. 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 Greater Manchester and Merseyside 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.
