Working Age Forum (WAF)

The Working Age Forum is for all visually impaired people who are in work or seeking employment.

The Forum helps the members of four South West London visual impairment organisations to meet like-minded people and have time to share ideas and problems and feel less isolated.

Education and work-related content are generally included in their events – for example, they have had a presentation from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). They Forum discussed changing career due to sight loss and the London Sight Loss Council gave a presentation. They have also outlined the many types of blind sports.
