Mission & vision Statement
To tackle the inequalities which prevent ethnically diverse communities from making informed choices relating to their sight by empowering, engaging and connecting with all stakeholders.
Ethnically diverse communities can make informed choices about their care and wellbeing relating to their vision.
BAME Vision’s strategic aims seek to address the following issues:
- Lack of engagement from professionals and organisations claiming ethnically diverse communities are “hard to reach”.
- Lack of access to eye care information in a format and language ethnically diverse communities understand, from point of diagnosis onwards.
- Negative attitudes and cultural barriers to sight loss within all communities.
- Gaps in data about eye care, eye health and sight loss in ethnically diverse communities.
