Jacky Fisher (Chair)
Jacky Fisher has been chair of trustees since 2011 after a short spell as a general trustee. She sits on all sub committees.
Jacky is a retired social worker who spent the last 17 years of her career as Social Work Director of the Independent Living Fund. She currently sits on Disability Appeal Tribunals approximately three times a month, hearing appeals from people who consider they should be entitled to a Personal Independence Payment.
Jacky has long experience of working with people with disabilities and promoting ways to increase their independence. This is also a strong ethos within My Sight Notts, and so she feels her background synchronises very well with this. She values the direct support and services offered by My Sight Notts to local people with visual impairment and enjoys helping the organisation to run effectively.
