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 Havering Vision Strategy was first developed following a Consultation Event for Visually Impaired People in Havering on 27th November 2012
