Thomas Pocklington Trust are launching the brand-new Bristol Sight Loss Council following the success of other Sight Loss Councils across the country. 

What is a Sight Loss Council?

Sight Loss Councils are made up of volunteers who themselves are blind or partially sighted. Members work to tackle local issues, working with public, private and voluntary organisations to improve and support their services and make them more accessible.  Like Thomas Pocklington Trust, Guide Dogs and other organisations in Bristol, we believe blind and partially sighted people are best suited to work with organisations to enable them to better understand the needs and improve the lives of people with sight loss.

Bristol Sight Loss Council Launch Event

An event to launch the Sight Loss Council in Bristol will take part on Thursday 28th March 2019 from 11.00 am to 2.00 pm. Lunch is included. The venue is The Southville Centre, Beauley Road, Bristol, BS3 1QG
