The research was commissioned by the Vision Strategy Leadership Group and carried out by independent evaluators from the NCVO Charities Evaluation Service.  Over 750 individuals participated in the research through a mixed-methods approach including interviews, surveys, and engagement events in all four countries of the UK. The report recommendations were co-produced at a workshop involving people who are blind or partially sighted and individuals representing a range of professions in the eye health and sight loss sectors.
