Who we are: Vision & Values


Our vision is to see a world in which all people with a visual impairment, sight loss, hearing impairment, hearing loss or other disabilities, are truly integrated into society with equal opportunities in all aspects of life, and to know that our passion and commitment has been influential in bringing this about.



Our mission is to be a leading provider of high-quality support, training and care services, and to create opportunities, for people with a visual impairment, including those with other disabilities; to encourage and facilitate the development of these on a local, regional and national basis by being a model of good practice. Our aim is to do this in a way which enhances the quality of life of those we work with.
