Grants of up to £20,000 have been made available to organisations working with blind and partially sighted people by the Vision Foundation.

The charities two funds were designed for projects that address structural barriers in London and to aid recovery of sight loss organisations from the pandemic.

Olivia Curno, chief executive of the Vision Foundation, said: ‘We are thrilled to be able to fund both innovative and essential projects which support blind and partially sighted Londoners, and to ensure that grassroots organisations are able to recover from a very challenging year and a half.’
