Reflecting and looking forward

To say there has been a lot going on over the past few months is an understatement! As we come together as one charity, we’ve already been able to extend our reach and impact, and we’re really pleased to introduce more science and medical research-based news in this newsletter. We hope it shows just how much your donations are helping.

In this edition of Insight, we introduce Ellie Southwood, our new Director of Social Impact. Ellie’s appointment means our charity is the only organisation in the sight loss sector with an Executive Leadership Team made up of 50% of people with lived experience of sight loss.

We also aim to highlight just how much your donations are helping; be it through funding PhD Studentships for researchers like Dr Nina Milosavljevic, providing organisations like Beacon Vision with funding and opportunities to knock down barriers to support for visually impaired victims of domestic abuse and providing young people who are struggling with their mental health the help they need.

Your support is continuing to make a difference. Our work would not be possible without you by our side. Thank you so much.

Remember a charity, leave a lasting legacy

Every gift in every Will, however large or small, makes a difference. Gifts in Wills help us plan for the future and invest in innovative and inspiring projects and research, which make such a huge and lasting difference to those living with or facing sight loss.
