Member Liaison Officer

The main purpose of my role is to empower and support members to highlight what is possible with sight loss.

As a member liaison officer, I would be the first point of contact for new and existing members to explore how our services could best assist to a life of independence and empowerment. Through candid and explorative talks, I would collaboratively work with members and staff to ensure that we refer impactful services and workshops that can be utilised in uplifting our members in their daily lives and exhibit the abundance of possibilities with sight loss.

Personal development is important to me and I believe that everyone is entitled to the opportunity to see what they are capable of in an environment that is accessible, safe and empowering.
