Vision Strategy

The UK Vision Strategy seeks to transform the UK’s eye health, eye care and sight loss services.

The UK Vision Strategy aims to achieve  three outcomes:

  1. Prevention: Everyone in the UK looks after their eyes and their sight.
  2. Provision: Everyone with an eye condition receive timely treatment and, if permanent sight loss occurs, early and appropriate services and support are available and accessible to all.
  3. Participation: A society in which people with sight loss can fully participate.

To help realise this, the Thomas Pocklington Trust, together with The London Visual Impairment Forum, are looking to establish a Local Vision Strategy Group in each London borough.

Working with each borough’s local sight loss societies, the Local Vision Strategy Group is designed to bring together service users and key stakeholders across the statutory and voluntary sectors. This includes everything from health care to social clubs!

 If you are interested in hearing more about, or being involved with, your Local Vision Strategy Group please contact:
