RNIB has launched a new project aimed at creating community leaders.

The Creating Young Community Leaders campaign, with funding from the Postcode Community Trust, is looking for young people with sight loss aged 18-30 to inspire their peers.

Initial recruitment will be in London, East of England, East Midlands and West Midlands.

No previous experience is required, but enthusiasm is a must. Additional qualities include being highly organised, a great communicator and a passion for uniting young blind and partially sighted people in your local area.

If selected you must be able to attend a training course in February. Find out more about our Creating Young Community Leaders campaign here.
