2020 - a most challenging year
The global pandemic has brought many challenges to the nystagmus community, the Nystagmus Network and people and services everywhere.
Despite the challenges of Covid-19, however, Chair of Trustees, Tim Cuddeford is pleased to report that 2020 was another positive year for the Nystagmus Network, thanks to the flexibility, innovation and resourcefulness of charity staff, volunteers, trustees, members and supporters.
Thanks go, too, to National Lottery Players. Funding from the National Lottery Community Fund helped support the charity through some very difficult months.
The Nystagmus Network has been funding nystagmus research since the 1990s and continued to do so in 2020, with a new PhD post awarded, bringing another expert to the table, and another small grant award, both thanks to the charity’s funding partnership with Fight for Sight.
To find out how the charity adapted and developed to meet the changing needs of the nystagmus community during the pandemic, whilst continuing to fulfil its charitable objectives of support, awareness and research, you can read the full report by following the link below.
