We have been made aware that telephone numbers used by our organisation are being ‘spoofed’ by nuisance callers.
Caller ID spoofing is the practice of causing the telephone network to indicate to the receiver of a call that the originator of the call is a number other than the true originating number.
Unfortunately, we currently cannot take action against those doing this because we don’t know who the culprits are.
The International Glaucoma Association will never cold call you. We will only telephone you if you have requested a callback from our membership team or our Sightline team.
If you have been affected, please do get in touch to let us know as are building an evidence base we will use to make a complaint and stop this from happening.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Glaucoma UK’s Board of Trustees is considering changing the charity’s membership model. The result would be that the trustees would become the only voting members.
The Board would continue to draw trustees from our membership and the people we support, and the charity would continue to provide opportunities for the people who use our services to influence how we deliver them.
We would welcome your views.Read More
