Changemakers understand that to lead change, they need to be willing to change and adapt, and that true innovation happens through learning what works and what doesn’t, adapting and adjusting accordingly. Join us and use your lived experience to reimagine and affect change through the lens of social action.
We are looking for enthusiastic individuals to bring their own personality to our newsletter STRiVE, to share their voice by generating video, audio and written articles for our Student Portal and to create thought provoking content to challenge our fundraisers.

Whether you’re a budding journalist, emerging vlogging star or simply want to learn, we have a place for you on our team. It’s about working with others and encouraging them to make a change with you. Use your words, actions and influence to inspire others and create positive change. VICTA Changemakers are collaborative, team players who understand that by sharing, everyone benefits.
The VICTA Changemaker Programme

At the heart of the VICTA Changemaker programme is the principle that your views, and those of other young people with a vision impairment, are heard, valued and influence decision making; and that you are engaged in driving change.

As a VICTA Changemaker, you will join a twelve-month programme of online and in-person workshops and experiences in London, Manchester, and Milton Keynes that explore a variety of media and content creation topics. Working with organisations such as the National Youth Agency, Buzz Radio and University Campus of Football we will create opportunities to advocate for change in fun, relaxed and genuinely interesting ways.

As a changemaker you will develop collaboration, teamwork, creativity, imagination, critical thinking and problem-solving, using methods and tools such as blogs, YouTube, video and animation. You can expect to be challenged, supported and stimulated.

To apply for this opportunity, you need to be aged 18 to 29 years and be registered or registerable as blind or partially sighted. Applications close on 31 May 2024. Successful applicants will be expected to attend five full-day sessions during a one-year term starting in June 2024.
