RSBC youth forum is recruiting!
If you are aged between 16 and 24 and love the activities that RSBC does, then consider joining our youth forum and have your voice heard!
The forum is a place to share your ideas and help drive RSBC. We have regular meetings, record podcasts on loads of topics and next year we’ll be writing our manifesto.

Who are the youth forum and what do we do?
The RSBC youth forum is a group of blind and partially sighted young people aged between 16 and 25. We are committed to creating positive change and championing the voices of blind and visually impaired young people, as well as influencing all areas of work across RSBP
The youth forum works to raise awareness and challenge perceptions of visually impaired young people. We aim to represent their views and opinions, highlight the issues that affect them, and make sure we’re doing our best to influence those who can push for change and bring about improvements in services at both RSBC and external organisations.
The youth forum meets regularly with trustees and staff across RSBC, to ensure that the voices of blind and visually impaired young people are at the forefront of driving the charities services and engagement.
We are working on a manifesto that will lay out our aims, values and beliefs. The manifesto will focus on three key areas:
Employment and education
