Children and young people's services
Advice to help children and young people with a vision impairment to play and study, using the most appropriate technology.
We can produce books in large-print, tailor-made to suit a child’s eye condition. The service includes fact and popular fiction titles, annuals and National Curriculum revision guides for home and school.
We offer expert, independent help and advice in accessing the right specialist support.
Experienced and trained family support officers and the helpline are able to provide practical advice and emotional support from the moment of the child’s diagnosis of vision impairment.
A guide dog can offer substantial benefits to young people who are blind or partially sighted.
Movement matters provides training to help blind children and young people move around safely and independently.
We offer an expanding UK-wide programme of day and weekend family events, plus social, fun experiences.
