ANNUAL REPORT 2019-20
Welcome to our Annual Report for 2019-20. It has been another busy year for our charity, ensuring that our services reach out to visually impaired people and that we promote the benefits of good eye health to all.
Whilst this is a report about the year 2019/20, it would be remiss not to mention in this opening section the events that have unfolded since March 2020. The outbreak of the global coronavirus pandemic has had a major impact on our work. We have changed the way our services are delivered and have had to rethink our approach to service development. Our fundraising income has been badly affected, though we have benefited from a number of grants available to help minimise the impact of Covid-19.
Working alongside our service users, volunteers, commissioners and other key stakeholders we are developing our plans to make sure that we can respond to the new challenges we face.
Writing this report for 2019/20 it has been good to look back at the work we have done and remember that we are in a strong position to move forward. This report gives a flavour of our work over the past year. We hope you enjoy reading about our achievements.
