Due to budgetary issues, and in particular due to the COVID 19 crisis, we are having to furlough all Vision UK staff and put the work of Vision UK in abeyance for at least two months with immediate effect. We will hope to re-open at the end of this period

We understand this comes at a very difficult time for the whole sector and indeed the whole country, but we find ourselves unable to continue. It is not a decision we have taken lightly.

We are very sorry to have to do this but hope you will understand it has been undertaken with significant discussion and with very heavy hearts.
