Our Services

Children & Families

Helping Northamptonshire’s children and young people to be part of the Action.

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.
