Joyce said:

“I’m delighted to be joining the Vision Foundation. I’m passionate about the charity’s mission to make London a shining example of a sight loss aware city and it is a privilege to be joining the team of staff, volunteers and supporters at the outset of an exciting new strategy.

“I look forward to making my contribution to this dynamic charity as it works towards transforming the lives of people living with and facing sight loss.”

Olivia Curno, chief executive of the Vision Foundation, said:

“I am delighted to welcome Joyce to the Vision Foundation. Her wealth of charity sector experience – in both executive and non-executive roles – will help us to achieve even greater heights and achieve our vision where people living with sight loss are equal citizens and preventable blindness is a thing of the past.”
