UK Members' Forum

In 2010, our UK Assembly was replaced by the UK Members' Forum, a new body designed to give us a closer rapport with our membership. The forum is a place for membership representatives to come together and discuss the issues of importance to them. These issues then go forward to the Board of Trustees. It gives our members a direct link to RNIB's most senior governing body and helps identify and shape major strategy, policy and service issues.

The UK Members' Forum first met in March 2010, and meets twice a year (one meeting includes the Annual General Meeting). It is supported by local member forums - nine in England, one in Northern Ireland, one in Scotland and one in Wales. As well as enabling our members to have a direct role in shaping our strategy, the UK Members' Forum increases opportunities for interaction between members at a local and national level. All members are invited to the forum meeting in their region or country, and each forum chooses its representatives to the UK Members' Forum.

Give time. Without volunteers we couldn’t run our services.

Give money. Without financial support from donations and legacies we simply couldn’t provide many of the products and services that help people find their life again.

Give your voice. Without active campaigners we could never get changes made to health, social care, employment and benefits.
