Mission & vision Statement
Our mission is to address the inequalities experienced by blind and partially sighted people and those at risk of sight loss from BAME communities, by changing attitudes and misunderstandings around vision impairment together. We will improve reach and engagement, allowing individuals and families to be in control of their own eye health and sight loss journey. Through working together with the eye health and sight loss sectors, our team with lived experience and professional expertise will challenge unfair treatment, come up with and influence strategies, break down barriers and widely increase the possibilities for people from BAME communities to have their say in all aspects of life, including decision making.
Our vision is for people from BAME communities to have access to information and resources in a variety of accessible formats. An environment where blind or partially sighted people are accepted in everyday life with increasing opportunities to make fulfilling life choices.
