Charity Collaborations


Since starting this blog I’ve had wonderful opportunities to meet and work with various charities who support people with sight loss and disability. The following is a list of guest posts, shared content and other mentions by the charities I have connected with so far I’ve also created a contributions playlist of Youtube videos I’ve been featured or mentioned in.

Thank you to all the charities concerned. And if any sight loss or disability charities are interested in a collaboration of some sort, do feel free to get in touch with suggestions or requests and I’ll happily consider them. You can email me at welleyenever@icloud.com, or message me on Facebook or Twitter. I look forward to hearing from you! 🙂

Aniridia is one of my eye conditions, and I do a bit of online voluntary work for this charity, assisting with promotional communications and social media, as time allows. I’ve also mentioned them in various posts in this blog.

I joined East London Vision shortly after moving to London and have taken part in many social events with them since.

Euan’s Guide

Euan’s Guide is a huge charity-run website where you can find disabled access reviews, and submit your own, for locations and attractions across the UK.

They have very kindly included me in 12 disabled bloggers to add to your reading list. Cheers guys!

Nystagmus Network

Nystagmus is my other sight condition, so naturally I’ve been getting involved with this charity as well, including giving my first ever public speech.

RNIB

RNIB tweet text - Did you know there are over 200 eye conditions? Share how you see. Hashtag How I See. Attached to the tweet is a video compilation featuring myself and 3 other bloggers talking about our eye conditions.

I’ve been getting involved with the Royal National Institute of Blind People in a few ways, including awareness material for their campaigns and guest posts.

I’ve been involved with a few campaigns with this disability charity, helping to spread awareness and support.
