Austin joins sight loss group to promote local charity

Dudley MP Ian Austin has joined a new Parliamentary group on sight loss to promote the work of the Beacon Centre for the Blind.

The Eye Health and Visual Impairment All-Party Parliamentary Group works to inform MPs about treatment and support for people suffering from sight loss and blindness.

Austin has joined the group to help promote the Beacon Centre for the Blind in Sedgley that provides specialist services and support for people with visual impairment.

The MP has previously backed campaigns by national charity Guide Dogs to improve blind people’s access to support and services.

Ian Austin said:

“I’m delighted to join this new group to raise issues facing people with sight loss and blindness in Parliament.

“The Beacon Centre for the Blind does brilliant work here in Dudley, so I will be working to promote them and speak up for local blind people.”
