Join the Bristol and Gloucestershire Sight Loss Councils (SLCs) visual impairment (VI) forums this month, to share your experiences of lockdown as a visually impaired person.

Whether you are anxious about social distancing when travelling, or have faced challenges ordering your online food shop, we want to hear your concerns and your suggestions. We are working closely with Bristol Council, Gloucestershire Council and local health settings, to ensure local providers understand the challenges the pandemic has raised for blind and partially sighted people in Bristol and Gloucestershire. We are dedicated to making positive change and giving blind people in the area a voice. We want to hear your views to help us shape our future work.

The Bristol SLC and Gloucestershire SLC, funded by Thomas Pocklington Trust and led by blind and partially sighted volunteers, advocates the needs, and campaigns on behalf of blind and partially sighted people in the area.
