At Thomas Pocklington Trust (TPT), we are committed to breaking down barriers to ensure that blind and partially sighted people have equitable opportunities to access higher and further education.
Using the voice of blind and partially sighted people, we lobby Government and decision makers to help ensure a more inclusive society where every person, regardless of vision impairment, can pursue their educational aspirations.
If you have any questions about our education policy and campaign work, or would like to get involved you can contact the TPT Education policy team at EducationPolicy@pocklington.org.uk.
