11th February 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Sight for Wight is inviting visually impaired (VI) members, volunteers and stakeholders to a Consultation Meeting that will inform the future direction of our charity. The meeting will include discussions on our mission and options for future programmes and operations.
Sight for Wight trustees met in January to narrow down what we think is feasible for us to achieve and we will share these reflections and options at the Stakeholder Consultation Meeting.
For practical reasons the total number of participants at the Consultation Meeting is limited to around forty. This means that, in addition to trustees, employees and Guarantor Members, we are limited to involving a further 10 VI members and 10 volunteers.
If you would like to attend on 11th February please let us know by email, letter or telephone by 4th February at the latest. To afford an equal opportunity to every VI Member and volunteer interested in attending, if we are oversubscribed, names will be drawn from a hat. Further details of the meeting will then be sent accordingly, including any assistance with transport for VI Members we are able to offer, which may be limited to providing a sighted guide escort service from Newport bus station to the meeting venue.
If you are unable to attend, you will still be able to input into these important discussions. If you would like to make any suggestions or observations for consideration, whether or not you are able or hope to attend in person, please let us have your reflections by 4th February at the latest – again by email, letter or telephone. Please ensure emails are sent to firstname.lastname@example.org Please mark emails or letters with Consultation Meeting in the title so we can readily identify them.
For those wishing to contribute by telephone, Member Services Assistant ,Sue Young, will be manning the phones for this purpose on Tuesday 28th January from 9.30am – 3.00pm and again on Tuesday 4th February from 9.30am – 3.00pm.
