One of our main activity the group does, is to support many campaigns, either directly or indirectly, nationally or locally, issues concerning and affecting any or all blind and partially sighted people living here in Great Yarmouth.

We publicise the campaign to as many people and news media outlets as possible by writing letters and emails to attract further support and draw more attention to the various parties that is the focus of the campaign. We invite the principal players as our guest speakers to our meetings, to hear their views and be advised with our own opinions and concerns. On very rare occasion, we would organise a rally to get the highest attention to a critical issue.
