British Blind Sport have announced a new Youth Advisory Panel for young people with a  VI, involved in sport and physical activity 🤸 Applications open on September 25th

So get your thinking caps on!

Youth Advisory Panel

British Blind Sport is excited to announce that we will be selecting up to 12 young people with visual impairments and aged 16-25, to become part of a new Youth Advisory Panel.

The Panel, or ‘YAP’, will act as a voice for young visually impaired (VI) people involved in sport in the UK, support BBS with policy and project development and advise on issues relating to young VI people in sport and physical activity.  As this project develops we are hoping that the Panel will also be able to advise and influence a range of sports organisations on how they can best support VI volunteers and participants.

This is a fantastic opportunity to for young VI people to truly be heard and have a positive and long lasting impact on the wider sporting community.

Applications will open from Friday 25th September when a full information pack will be released alongside the application form. For more info, head over to 👉 bit.ly/BBSYAP 

Applications can be fun and innovative to provide you with the opportunity to show us the best version of you!  You can apply through the application form or send us an audio recording or video submission.  The deadline for submissions is Friday 16th October.
