London Vision looks for ways to help people find and stay in employment. The Works For Me programme is a free service which provides support to visually impaired people living in a London borough who are seeking paid employment, as well as those who are already in paid employment who want to retain work through sight loss or are navigating a career change.

Our Employment Advisers help people develop skills to support the transition to the workplace, offer advice and information on navigating the job market through personal and social barriers, and provide representation and encouragement throughout their journey to attaining a sustainable and enjoyable career.

The support available through Works For Me includes:

  • One-to-one support either face-to-face, over the phone, by post or email with a member of our Employment Team at various locations across London – this can be one-off or ongoing
  • Employment information and updates distributed through our mailing list
  • Drop-in sessions
  • Advice when speaking with recruiters and employers
  • Peer-led events such as networking and workshops delivered by people who can share their experiences of working with sight loss
  • Signposting to other specialist services such as counselling, rehabilitation, education or business start up

The support offered can be tailored to individual needs. We encourage you to build your own path through the service, accessing whichever strands of support you feel meet your needs.

We also have a Working Age Forum, for blind and partially sighted people of a working age. We hold regular meetings throughout the year, and this is a great space to meet other people who are in work, or looking to get into work. You can find more information about the Working Age Forum here
