What is the Kingston Visual Impairment Parliament?
The Kingston Visual Impairment (VI) Parliament is made up of volunteer MPs, each one championing a specialist area of service provision that impacts the sight loss community:
Elise Crayton – MP for Employment
Gloria Tripi – MP for Health
Austin Graham – MP for Transport
Charles Tavener – MP for Sports and Leisure
Barbara Smith – MP for Independence
Elinor Young – MP for Health and Arts
Martin Gayle – MP for Public Engagement
The VI Parliament has been successfully running since its formation in late 2014. Quarterly public meetings are held which provide a platform for visually impaired residents to discuss the issues which impact them. Anyone can attend!
The VI Parliament MPs link in with stakeholders to develop a safer and more accessible environment, better employment opportunities, and transport. But it’s not all serious business! The VI Parliament also organises social events, including theatre trips, quizzes, days out and audio book swap shops!
