We are very pleased to welcome Visionary as a new Partner to the Coalition for Personalised Care (C4PC).
As the national membership organisation for local sight loss charities, Visionary connects organisations, develops their skills and shares information and best practice from across their network in a similar way to C4PC.
Also like C4PC, Visionary can be described as a ‘network of networks’, consisting of over 116 local member organisations and 21 national partners. Their shared Vision is a world in which people living with sight loss can access what they need where and when they need it.
Visionary CEO Fiona Sandford told us that “Our aim is to help create a world where Blind and Partially Sighted people can access the services they want, often best delivered locally, when and where they want them.
“We are looking forward to being part of the Coalition, sharing information and knowledge, joining in with collaborative discussions.”
This emphasis on valuing and enabling appropriate and timely care and support is aligned with the personal choice and supported self-management components of the Comprehensive Model of Personalised Care.
C4PC Programme Manager, Emma Geldart, explained that “Visionary’s extensive knowledge of visual impairment service provision gathered from over 120 organisations will be an invaluable asset to the growing Coalition.
“Their contribution and involvement will increase the breadth and scope of areas in which C4PC can participate and influence.”
You can find out more about Visionary’s news and events on their website. We extend a very warm welcome to Visionary and look forward to hearing more about their work and activities over the coming months.
