SeeAbility is a founding member and chair of the England implementation group of the ground-breaking UK-wide initiative, which brings together for the first time: people with sight loss, users of eye care services, eye health and social care professionals and statutory and voluntary organisations – in order to produce a unified framework for action on all issues relating to vision.
The UK Vision Strategy has been developed in response to the World Health Assembly VISION2020 resolution to reduce avoidable blindness by the year 2020 and improve support and services for blind and partially sighted people.
The Strategy responds to shortfalls in the UK’s eye health and sight loss services and addresses the exclusion of blind and partially sighted people and widespread ignorance and apathy about eye health.
