Sight Loss Councils are made up of volunteers who are blind and partially sighted. Sight Loss Councils aim to tackle the issues that affect people living with visual impairments, and they work with public, private, and voluntary organisations to improve the accessibility of their services. The Sight Loss Council concept was developed and established across the UK by Thomas Pocklington Trust, London Vision’s core funder. Insights gained in the London Sight Loss Council will inform the work and policies of the local Sight Loss Councils and debate taking place at a national level.

London Vision is coordinating the establishment of a London Sight Loss Council. The London Sight Loss Council's aim is to make a difference through campaigning, representing the unique voice of blind and partially sighted Londoners in areas such as health, employment and transport.
This project has been made possible through funding from the Vision Foundation, which will support the first year of this important project.
