Thank you for taking the time to nominate and vote in this year's Visionary Annual Conference awards.

Now in their eighth year, the awards aim to recognise and celebrate excellence in the leadership and management of local sight loss charities and in the quality of service offered.  Highlighting local charities’ achievements helps to spread good practice throughout the sector and draws attention to the talent and expertise being brought to bear on charitable activity in the sight loss sector in the UK.

We have changed the format this year, so that you, our members have the chance to vote for your winner in each category. The shortlisted entries have been anonymised and are shown over the next few pages. Each member is allowed one vote per organisation across all four categories. The winner will be the organisation with the most votes. If there is a tie, the shortlisting panel will have the final say.

The winners will be announced at the awards dinner, and each winner will receive £500.

If you would like to discuss your awards nomination or vote with us, please email visionary@visonary.org.uk and a member of the team will get back to you.

Voting closes at 5pm on Wednesday 25 October 2017.
