At Birmingham Vision we are keen to support individuals with a visual impairment who would like to either try sport and physical activity for the first time, or to get them physically active again. The aim is to break down barriers to participation so that sport is available to those who want tot partake.

Luke’s role with Birmingham Vision involves working with a number of local organisations, societies, recreational sports clubs, Governing Bodies and professional sports clubs in order to provide sporting opportunities to individuals with a visual impairment.

This is a very active, “hands on role” and through these partnerships we are able to firstly highlight where the gaps in the landscape are, and then look at how we can fill these gaps by providing taster sessions, open days or even creating new clubs. Luke is able to signpost service users to local accessible clubs that they may not have been aware of previously, or use it to gauge interest on the potential creation of new clubs.

Luke also delivers Sight Loss Awareness training to corporate partners to help up-skill their staff members. This helps to ensure that they have the relevant knowledge and skills in place to support individuals with a visual impairment.
