Celebrating local societies – Chris

Normally January can be boring and seem like a very long month, depending on what type of Christmas and New Year you have had.

All I can say is this January went off with a bang. East London Vision hosted a Local Society Celebration Event,  where ELVis attended. I grant you not the real one that would be something, but the one and only Chinese ELVis.

There was an Awards Ceremony, speeches and cutting of a huge cake. Socialising and finger buffet followed by dancing with ELVis.  Everyone who attended enjoyed themselves it was a great way to start the New Year.

Peer Support Groups play such an important role they help people from feeling isolated, allows people to meet up and have a chat, make friends, build up peoples confidences in all sorts of ways. Help to make vision impaired people be and become more independent.

East London Vision (ELVis) is the subgroup for the 7 geographical areas that naturally cover all of east London north of the Thames: • Barking and Dagenham • City and Hackney • Havering • Newham • Redbridge • Tower Hamlets • Waltham Forest. ELVis is designed to provide an effective and efficient way of ensuring that vision impaired people living in East London get the support and services they need. It is an umbrella organisation with voluntary sector, user led representation in each of the east London boroughs. Our vision is that everyone living in East London experiencing, or at risk of, any form of sight loss, receives a high quality service relevant to their need and at a time appropriate for themselves. Our aim is to enhance & link vision impaired services and organisations throughout East London, improving the quality of life for blind and partially sighted people and increasing individual independence.
