Voice of Vision Impairment
Advocating for the rights and needs of people who are blind and partially sighted in Ireland.
All VVI members and representatives have a visual impairment, and since we are not a service-provider, we necessarily have an expertise in credibly representing the interests of the visually impaired service-user, without any conflict of interest.
We are what is known as a National DPO (Disabled Peoples Organization) as defined under the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities. To our knowledge, VVI is the only DPO for people with a visual impairment in the Republic of Ireland.
