Vision Partnership

Eight leading charities in the UK sight loss sector have formed the Vision Partnership (formerly VI Charity Sector Partnership). The partnership’s purpose is to provide a strategic overview of initiatives aimed at improving the lives of blind and partially sighted people, as well as those at risk of sight loss across the UK.

The founding partners are Blind Veterans UK, Glaucoma UK, Guide Dogs, Macular Society, Retina UK, RNIB, Thomas Pocklington Trust and Visionary.  All workstreams have representation from Visionary members and several workstreams are also supported by other sight loss organisations, including Fight for Sight/Vision Foundation and SeeAbility. The Vision Partnership is chaired by Matt Stringer, CEO of RNIB, and supported by CEOs from all partner organisations, each of whom sponsors different workstreams.

Earlier this year, the Vision Partnership undertook an independent strategic review to reassess its purpose, ambition, strategic focus, and identity. This review aimed to reconfigure the partnership’s structures where necessary to ensure effective delivery and future fitness for purpose.

As a result of this review, four strategic priorities were identified:

  1. Political influencing (taking advantage of the upcoming General Election)
  2. Developing an evidence base, including data collation
  3. Prevention, including services and medical research funding
  4. Independent living and vision rehabilitation

The Vision Partnership will develop a program of activities and processes to support these four strategic priorities.
