Diversity – Each person is unique 

Our History

We’ve been doing this since 1923….
When the Croydon Voluntary Association for the Blind (known as Croydon Vision) was formed there were limited opportunities for blind and partially sighted people. The world has changed a lot since then but at our core we still hold the same belief that those living with sight loss should be able to do so with independence and confidence. Croydon Vision is all about helping our members, young and old, to live rich, fulfilled lives.

Strategic Plan 2020-23

In the past year, Croydon Vision has transformed. We’re determined to improve the lives of our members like never before and we have a new focus on how we’re going to achieve that. But we need to act fast.

Our Strategy is a call to action; changing more lives from despair to living independently. See summary below, alternatively click here for a PDF copy. – (word version; please request by phone or email)

  • Co-production – our members to actively shape service development
  • Community – improving our reach and engagement in Croydon
  • Accessibility – transforming our premises and improving technology usage
  • Holistic Health – putting our members at the centre of their care pathways
  • Sustainable Reach – improving our brand, communications and income stream.
