Help Childhood Learning

As part of the Open Sight Hampshire strategic plan, Terry Smith, Community Development and Support Manager for Open Sight has launched a National petition to The Department for Health and Social Care entitled ‘Every child to have an eye test before they start school’.

The Open Sight Hampshire goal is to reach 100,000* signatures so Open Sight need as much support as can be mustered. RNIB Campaigns will be launching the petition on its social media platforms which will be a great help. There are plenty more such agencies which Terry will be alerting as well. (*100,000 signatures ensure a mandatory Government debate.)

You can read more and sign the petition here:
