Vision Fund now open to applications for organisations working with the visually impaired in London (application deadline 9 January 2020).

The Vision Foundation (formerly the Greater London Fund for the Blind) is now accepting applications for the newly launched Vision Fund.

The new fund aims to address the most pressing issues affecting blind and partially sighted people in London today.

The grant programme is designed to fund innovative projects that are changing lives within communities.

The charity is keen to hear from organisations looking for funding for projects which fall in line with their 3 strategic aims:

1. Opening London up.
2. Empowering at-risk groups, and
3. Preventing avoidable blindness.

The Vision Foundation supports organisations delivering services directly to blind and partially sighted people across London, and organisations that are experts in their fields but may not be reaching blind and partially sighted people.

The Foundation is looking for projects which can demonstrate a track record of success, or ideas that need an innovative early funder to give them a chance.

Grants range from £5,000-£50,000 for projects lasting between 1-2 years.

The deadline for applications is Thursday 9 January 2020.
