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 tangible improvements in eye health and sight loss services in three areas.

  • Health: Improve the eye health of the people of the UK
  • Services: Eliminate avoidable sight loss and deliver excellent support to those with a sight problem
  • Inclusion: Enhance the inclusion, participation and independence of blind and partially sighted people.

To help realise this, the Thomas Pocklington Trust, together with The London Visual Impairment Forum, are establishing 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!

The Redbridge Vision Strategy was developed following a Consultation Event for Visually Impaired People in Redbridge on 17th July 2012, hosted by in Redbridge LINk

ActivEyes Redbridge was set up as a direct result of this consultation and is delighted to support the Redbridge Vision Strategy Group. ActivEyes Redbridge Management Committee member,  Fadeia Hossian, is the Chair of the Vision Strategy Group and, in this role, will be driving forward the Action Plan. 

An annual Update Event is planned each autumn, at which blind and partially sighted people can hear ofAction Plan progress, and the Vision Strategy Group can gauge its impact and seek guidance on future priorities.
