Andrew Morter, chief executive of Vision Norfolk

Vision Norfolk Appoints New Chief Executive

Norfolk’s sight loss charity Vision Norfolk has announced Andrew Morter as its new chief executive.

He has 20 years experience in the voluntary sector, most recently at Norwich-based community charity Future projects, where he was head of operations.  Prior to this he was head of volunteering at Voluntary Norfolk, and he has also worked for the Citizens Advice Bureau.

Vision Norfolk co-chair Richard Hanson said, “We are delighted that Andrew is joining to lead the charity at a pivotal moment as we emerge from the impact of the pandemic.  Like every charity, we face challenges, but Andrew’s experience, extensive knowledge of the charitable sector, and determination mean that he is the ideal person to take the organisation forward.”

Andrew  said, “I am excited to have the opportunity to play a key role within Vision Norfolk, which has a proud history of supporting visually impaired people across Norfolk.

“I am deeply passionate about providing high-quality services, and committed to tackling the barriers that prevent people from living safe, independent and fulfilled lives – which is the mission of Vision Norfolk.

“Like all charities, Vision Norfolk faces particular challenges as we emerge from the pandemic, but I am optimistic and confident as we develop a new long-term strategy which will ensure that the charity continues to support visually impaired people in a meaningful way for years to come.”

Andrew, who was born and has lived in Norwich and is married with an 11 year-old daughter, has experience of hereditary sight loss in his family.  Five years ago he undertook the personal challenge of undertaking an Open University Law degree, which he will complete in 2022.
