How will you ensure that the 'being there' development funding raised will lead to long-term change?

Our experience suggests that if we raise development funding for the 'being there' service we may be able to negotiate government funding for long-term sustainability. Over time, we want to gather evidence that will allow us to do this, as it will show that the sight loss adviser service is too important not to fund.

In the meantime, we must ensure that people who are losing their sight get the support they need, when they need it most - at the point of diagnosis.
