Our Children and Families Service provides practical advice, guidance and support to families from the moment a child is diagnosed, through each key stage of their development up until the age of 19.
Our Vision is a world where children who are blind and partially sighted are able to realise their aspirations, achieve their maximum potential and reach their goals.
How we can Help:
- Family Support – Immediate and ongoing specialist advice and information over the telephone or in the home.
- Family / young people’s events – we organise “taster” days with local clubs and providers within a supported inclusive environment. We also organise excursions and social events for our younger visually impaired members and their families to come together and have fun!
- Advocacy Support – expert advice and representation from both local and national organisations.
- Sports and Leisure – practical advice and guidance about the availability of leisure services and activities in the county.
