The London Visual Impairment Forum (LVIF), in conjunction with the Thomas Pocklington Trust, is working on a programme to develop and support the implementation of a Local Vision Strategy that promotes a high quality and consistent level of support for blind and partially sighted people in every London borough. For ease of efficient administration, London has been divided into 5 clusters.
East London Vision (ELVis) is the cluster for the 7 geographical areas that naturally cover all of east London north of the Thames:
ELVis is designed to provide an effective and efficient way of ensuring that vision impaired people living in East London get the support and services they need. It is an umbrella organisation with voluntary sector, user led representation in each of the east London boroughs.
Our vision is that everyone living in East London experiencing, or at risk of, any form of sight loss, receives a high quality service relevant to their need and at a time appropriate for themselves.
Our aim is to enhance & link vision impaired services and organisations throughout East London, improving the quality of life for blind and partially sighted people and increasing individual independence.
All of our work is person centred and focused on improving people's quality of life and increasing individual independence. This is done by trying to ensure that every piece of work makes a positive change for Vision Impaired people in at least one of the following areas:
The partnership of ELVis, primarily by enabling and linking, and local societies, as the main deliverers in the 7 London boroughs, achieve the following benefits for vision impaired people:
