To mark the significant milestone of our centenary, we have set ourselves the challenge of raising £1,000,000 to support blind and partially sighted people into work.
Right now, 40,000 blind and partially sighted Londoners are unemployed. Blind and partially sighted people have the right to work like anybody else – the opportunities just need to be unlocked. With your help, we can make London a global exemplar of a sight loss aware city.
“As I embark on my first job search since losing my eyesight, there are a number of things that have really struck me, such as the number of large employers that have inaccessible application processes… With 15 years of recruitment experience, if I am finding this challenging, I can guarantee that others are.” – Jurgen, 36, supported by the Vision Foundation
