The Thomas Pocklington Trust has been in touch to share news about the Bristol Sight Loss Council visual impairment (VI) forum, which next meets on Tuesday 21 July. The forum is a chance for visually impaired people to share experiences of the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown.
The Bristol Sight Loss Council is funded by the Thomas Pocklington Trust. The organisation is led by blind and partially sighted volunteers; and advocates the needs, and campaigns on behalf of, blind and partially sighted people in the area.
Alun from the Thomas Pocklington Trust has been in touch to tell us about the forum. The Independent Mental Health Network has been working with Alun in recent months on the new charter for pledges to put the voice of people at the heart of new services.
