Vision UK: the annual conference for the eye health and sight loss sectors
Vision UK is the annual conference for the eye health and sight loss sectors to discuss the key priorities for continued cross-sector collaboration. The sectors work together to deliver three strategic goals: improving eye health in the UK, integrated services and support for people living with sight loss, and full social inclusion for blind or partially sighted people.
Vision UK 2017: Shaping Futures will take place on Thursday 15 June at the QEII Centre, London.
'Shaping Futures' will focus on innovative approaches to achieving the three strategic goals as we move forward, together.
The programme will feature a series of talks, case studies and panel discussions that will inspire action, collaboration and creative thinking to deal with the changing social, economic and political environment the eye health and sight loss sectors operate in now and in the future.
We will hear about how other collaborative initiatives are leading the way in changing public attitudes and championing self-advocacy, as well as how the eye health and sight loss sectors are successfully working together and bringing about change that creates a future inclusive for all.
Delegates will choose between three streams to tailor their learning and networking opportunities:
- Public health, individual responsibility and collective action
- Working together towards integrated care and support services
- Inclusion - being heard and changing attitudes!
At the early-bird rate of £80 +VAT (£96)
The early-bird rate will run until midnight on Thursday 13 April, after which places will be priced at £100 +VAT (£120).
If you are making a group booking of more than 10 people from the same organisation please email email@example.com to book.
