A network for co-production practitioners
Take a look at our national network linking people affected by sight loss.
About Action Connect
Here at Action for Blind People (Action), we understand how important it is to ensure that the experience of people affected by sight loss shapes what we do, and how we do it. That’s why we’ve created Action Connect, a forum for you to communicate with Action and with other people who are visually impaired.
Through Action Connect, our teams across the country will gain a better understanding of what living with little or no sight means. This insight
will shape our services and the way they are delivered; the things we say; and what we aspire to do in the future.
And we aren’t just talking about people who are blind or partially sighted themselves – input from friends and family, colleagues and employers is
important too. In fact we want to hear from anyone whose life has been touched by sight loss.
Why join Action Connect?
We recognise the role that the community plays in helping people deal with their sight loss. Action Connect will enable you to share your own
experiences, learn from others and find solutions
to specific problems.
You can also connect with people in your local area and individuals who share your interests, in the way that most suits you. And, if you want to get together in person, we can help you do that too. With Action Connect, you no longer need to deal with issues alone because you have the support of others who have experience of what you’re going through.
You’ll also be helping us to improve our services, which benefit nearly 30,000 people every year.
You will be able to participate on your terms, in whichever way best suits you - via our online forum, face to face, by phone, email, post or in direct
partnership with us - and you can have as much or as little involvement as you want. It’s that simple.
