Knocking down barriers
We have some wonderful stories to share with you. J and Edward feature in our update about the See My Skills report, which details how we are driving change and knocking down barriers to employment. You can also read Mavis and Eleanor’s story about forming last relationships amongst the most challenging of circumstances.
It’s fantastic to be able to open our shops again and for us to share with you all the positive changes that have been made over the past few months.
Of course our work would not be possible without the kindness and generosity of our supporters. There are so many ways you can get involved with Vision Foundation and work with us to make a difference to blind and partially sighted people.

Finding treasure in our charity shops
or many blind and partially sighted people, shopping can be an arduous task. Shops may be difficult to navigate with narrow aisles, trip hazards and items not in their usual place. The Vision Foundation have listened to our visually impaired shoppers and started adapting our seven fabulous stores to address these issues.
Breaking the cycle of unemployment
Blind and partially sighted people can do the vast majority of the jobs that sighted people do. They might do them a little differently – using specialist technology or admin support – but they do them successfully.
See my Skills - J and Edward's stories
As well as commissioning the See My Skills report, we have specifically funded a number of impactful projects which are addressing the barriers to employment.
