The members of the Vision UK Services, Support and Care Panel unanimously agreed to the proposal to step down the panel with an option to reconvene in the future if required (decision proposed November 2019 final agreement January 2020).
With the panel stepping down, the strategic role of the panel will be split in the main to the Leadership Panel and in part to the Vision UK Early Intervention and Enablement Committee and the Vision UK Children and Young People with a Vision Impairment Committee. As the majority of the members of this panel sit on at least one of these three groups, this will enable better use of Vision UK and sector resources while allowing the same outcomes and opportunities to be realised. We will now take the proposal to the Leadership Panel and committees to confirm this approach.
