Just over a week ago we unveiled our accessible sculpture of our Royal Patron, HRH The Countess of Wessex. Vision Foundation Centenary Appeal Board Chair, Naqi Rizvi opened the event with a welcome address, saying: “This is just one example of the Vision Foundation’s promise to create a world more accessible to those with sight loss. I know just how meaningful that promise is - I was born with very little sight which gradually deteriorated and left me blind since I was seven. “Despite this, I am standing here today through determination, patience, and the support of my loved ones, but like so many in this room, I have faced countless unnecessary barriers and prejudices. Nearly three-quarters of blind and partially sighted people of working age in the UK are unemployed, which doesn’t only mean a lack of financial independence, but also lower confidence, more isolation and inequality in our communities.” We want to break the cycle of unemployment for blind and partially sighted people.
