At Visibility Scotland, people with sight loss are at the heart of everything we do. We have a long history of listening and responding to people with visual impairment to encourage a culture and environment which promotes and enables choice, equality and independence for all.
If you’re living with sight loss or you’re the family member or carer of someone who is, our VI Voices representation group is your opportunity to shape and improve the services available to visually impaired people through participation in surveys, focus groups, consultations and research.
How it works
When you sign-up to be a VI Voice, you’ll receive regular emails listing current involvement opportunities.
These could involve participation in surveys, focus groups, consultations and research.
You’ll have the chance to shape the work of Visibility Scotland, and to engage with other organisations looking to speak to people with lived experience to help develop and improve the services they provide.
It’s completely up to you which opportunities you get involved with. You can choose the opportunities that interest you and you can take part in as many or as few as you like.
Who can join VI Voices?
You do not need to have accessed any of Visibility Scotland’s services in the past. If you are living with sight loss (or if you’re a family member or carer), and you’re 18 or over, then we want to hear your views whether or not you’ve been in touch with us before.
Why VI Voices matters
At Visibility Scotland we believe that people living with sight loss are experts by experience. By sharing your thoughts and views on what matters to you, you will help us to make positive changes for the wider visually impaired community: you don’t need sight to have vision.
