We provide a range of services to support not only your child with sight loss, but the whole family. This includes equipping your child with the skills they need to live an independent and active life, to family events to connect with other families living with sight loss.

How we've helped Nell

Nell was just one and a half, when she met Branwen Jones for the first time, a habilitation specialist from Guide Dogs. This was the first specialist support the family received. The complexities of Nell’s eye condition makes her one in six billion.

Now at five-years-old, we've been helping Nell and her family prepare for school, including navigating the restrictions of Covid-19. 

Find the right support for you and your family
