Service User Member Involvement Team (SUMIT)
Local visually impaired people are at the heart of everything we do at My Sight Notts and our Service User Member Involvement Team (SUMIT) has a key role to play in representing the views of local blind and partially sighted people. SUMIT has 15 visually impaired members who live in the city centre and in rural communities across Notts and who range in age from 27 to 93!
Our SUMIT team not only give their personal views about developments at our charity, they also lead our consultation agenda, helping to give a voice to other visually impaired people who use our services. Our SUMIT team welcome the opportunity to facilitate consultations for other agencies, so if the views of visually impaired people matter to your organisation, contact us to discuss how we can help you reach out to people with sight loss.
