Our Client Advisory Board

We created our new Client Advisory Board to ensure that our services continue to be led by the needs and aspirations of blind and partially sighted people. Our first meeting is being held in July 2022.

Our Board is made up of visually impaired people living in the West of England.

The purpose of the Sight Support Advisory Group is to ensure the voice of people with lived experience of sight loss is represented in decision-making by both the Sight Support Board of Trustees and the management team.

We currently have opportunities for blind or partially-sighted people in the West of England to join our new Client Advisory Board .  If you are interested in helping us ensure the voice of the VI community is represented across all levels of the organisation, we would love to hear from you.

The Client Advisory Board will focus on reviewing and developing our service, ensuring feedback from service users informs our planning and development.

  • This is a voluntary role.
  • Members of the Board will be expected to attend regular (quarterly) Group meetings.
  • Members of the Board are there to act as a representative of people with sight loss, advocating for services and issues which are of relevance to the wider community.
