The Vision Foundation stands up for the rights and freedoms of people living with sight loss. The charity funds organisations providing front-line projects and services across the capital, and works collaboratively through researching, building capacity, funding and investing, and advocacy. 

We’ve been going for a hundred years but with a new strategy and rebrand last year, we are still in the early stages of our journey to become the progressive, impact-focused grantmaker that we aspire to be.  You can read more about this on our website.  

We are looking to recruit an exceptional Director of Grants and Impact to build up our grant-making and wider impact work – including capacity building, strategic partnerships, research and advocacy.  You will be experienced making grants and supporting grantees to evolve and develop.  You will be able to think creatively about the best interventions we can make to deliver the greatest impact for our investment.
