Vision UK is pleased to announce the Royal Society for Blind Children (RSBC) as its newest member. RSBC’s work to create a better life for blind children, by helping every young person they work with to find and fulfil their own unique potential complements Vision UK’s ambitions:
- Everyone looks after their sight.
- People’s eye conditions are identified early, treated and, where possible, cured.
- People receive services which meet their specific needs, joined-up and good quality.
- People with sight loss live the lives they choose.
Vision UK’s Children and Young People with a Vision Impairment Committee involves many organisations working with and for children and young people who are blind or partially sighted and in addressing the issues which affect them. RSBC are a key member of this committee.
Mary Bairstow, Vision UK’s National Development Manager said:
‘The issues around children and young people who are blind or partially sighted need to be considered and acted on through all the strategic work of Vision UK. We very much welcome RSBC as members as this will bolster both our, and their, ability to make positive changes for children and young people.’
