VI Talk is aimed at anyone with a visual impairment, anyone who knows someone who is visually impaired or anyone who has connections with an organisation or group that offers services or support to visually impaired people.
VI Talk has grown from the work that Jo Fishwick and Michael Allen have done with the old pupils association for St. Vincent's School in Liverpool. (SVOPA.)
