A chance meeting between Thuy Pham and Faith Barber has led to the setup of Dining For Sight. Thuy is an orthoptist (vision and eye movements specialist) who is currently working for the NHS and Faith is a professionally trained visually impaired chef. Dining For Sight offers work experience for people with visual impairment and other disabilities in the catering industry. Our social enterprise also aims to promote the importance of eye health to the community through a series of workshops and events to be held in Birmingham.
Dining For Sight runs regular supper clubs and trades at a range of street food events and food festivals within the West Midlands. We are in the process of purchasing a mobile catering trailer with the recent funding secured from National Lottery Community Fund. This will allow us to increase our trading activities and target hard-to-reach communities with our eye health messages.
