Our impact in 2022-2023 easy read
This is our impact report.
It explains how we have made a difference to people’s lives over the past year
We are really excited to share all our hard work!
We have made a difference to over 4,000 people through our work.
All of our homes are rated as good by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
CQC are an organisation that decides how good support services are.
They make sure people are getting the right support.
We carried out 2,799 sight tests to children in special schools.
Almost all families said our support was good or very good.
This is Jake.
Jake is supported by SeeAbility.
Jack’s mum said:
“I am fortunate that Jake has found somewhere where it is good for him now.
All the staff are lovely and I feel happy he is supported by SeeAbility.”
We want to make sure people with learning disabilities get more opportunities and live better lives.
All our work is aimed at three goals:
1. Improving lives through good support.
2. Making sure people get the eye care they need.
3. Supporting more people to be involved in society
We have continued supporting people to live exciting lives.
We opened up more homes in Oxfordshire, Hampshire and Dorset.
We started a plan called ‘Quality of Life’.
Quality of Life is helping people to decide what they want to do with their lives, and helping them to make plans.
People with learning disabilities are 10 times more likely to have eye problems.
We have been carrying out eye tests in special schools.
We gave 528 children their first eye test.
We’ve been asking the government to continue supporting our work.
We have a team called Eye Care Champions.
Eye Care Champions are people with disabilities.
They help other people with disabilities get the eye care they need.
This year, the Eye Care Champions worked with almost 1,000 adults with learning disabilities.
We want people with learning disabilities, autism and sight loss to be in control of their lives.
We have a team of people with disabilities.
They raise awareness and speak up about the changes they want to see in society.
The team now has 11 people.
They have worked with lots of organisations.
We also help people with disabilities to find jobs.
This is through our programme called Ready, Willing and Able.
In the past year, we helped 21 people with disabilities to find jobs.
Next year might be difficult for SeeAbility.
The whole country is struggling with money.
But we have lots of exciting plans and goals.
We are excited to continue our Quality of Life plan.
In London, we will have a new way for people with learning disabilities to find eye care.
It is called Easy Eye Care.
Our Ready Willing and Able programme will grow even more.
We will look at how we can better support people.
We will also look at how we can better support everyone who works for us.
Thank you to everyone who has supported SeeAbility over the past year.
