If you are blind or partially sighted and live in the UK, you may be aware of RNIB Connect, RNIB’s initiative to help visually impaired people connect with others. Recently as part of this, RNIB launched Connect Voices, a project which helps you be involved with RNIB and get your voice heard! I recently joined Connect voices, and although I have only been a member for less than a month, I am really impressed at how much members are encouraged to get involved. I even became a member of the project’s Editorial group, allowing me to get involved even further with the project itself and its leadership.
So what is it?
Do you want to get more involved with RNIB?
Then join Connect Voices today!
At RNIB, our most important value is ‘Being led by blind and partially sighted people’. This is the reason we created Connect Voices, where you’ll be able to use your experience of living with sight loss to help drive what we as a charity think, decide and do.
So, what kind of things could you do?
You can take part in as little or as much as you like!
Work on short and longer term projects with staff, take part in quick poll surveys, hear about external opportunities from TV and radio companies, and help universities with their research…to name a few!
Interested? Join our free online group now by emailing [email protected] with your name and email address or call our helpline on 0303 123 9999.
It’s never been easier to get involved!
