Funding – Vision Foundation


Vision Foundation believes that blind and partially sighted people should have the same opportunities as anyone else. One of the ways we work to ensure this is through the Vision Fund which provides grants to organisations that deliver front-line services which address barriers affecting people with sight loss across London.

About The Vision Fund

Guided by our vision of a future where people living with sight loss are equal citizens and preventable blindness is a thing of the past, the Vision Fund is designed to support organisations delivering services directly to blind and partially sighted people across London, and organisations that are expert in their fields but may not be reaching blind and partially sighted people. We welcome applications that cover all aspects of living, working, studying in or visiting London. We are looking for projects which can demonstrate a track record of success or initiatives that need an innovative early-stage funder to provide an opportunity to develop ideas, learning and leverage further funding.

Grants and Impact Advisory Committee

The Vision Foundation’s Grants and Impact Advisory Committee makes sure the Vision Foundation’s grants and impact activities are fair, transparent and guided by expert advice and knowledge. The Committee members, who all have lived experience of sight loss, provide independent advice to our Board of Trustees, with a particular focus on reviewing funding applications and making recommendations on the best and most impactful projects to support.

Applications for funding are now open. Please visit this page for more information on how to apply.

London Community Response Fund

The emergency situation brought about by Covid-19 spurred the launch of the London Community Response, coordinated by London Funders. This Fund has made millions of pounds available to London’s civil society groups affected by Covid-19 through an easy to access process. The Vision Foundation was an early partner and contributor to ensure that blind and partially sighted people were supported during this crisis.
