Joint Chairs:
Peter Fahy, Director of Adult Services, Coventry City Council
Mike Hennessey, Corporate Director for Adult and Community Services Suffolk County Council

The network is designed to provide a point of contact for frontline staff and their managers involved in the delivery of services to people with physical and sensory impairment and HIV/AIDS. This will include anyone providing services locally, by voluntary organisations and other providers.

Vision UK is often asked to represent agencies and service providers catering for blind or partially sighted users and this group will provide important information and advice relating to key issues affecting blind and partially sighted people.

The Group provides opportunities to share good practice examples and discuss common issues affecting workers providing services in local authority areas via voluntary societies or local authorities.

The Group’s Resources section provides content on information and issues affecting the sector, potential changes to legislation, consultation documents and links to other useful bodies.
