Our vision is a world in which children and young people who are blind or vision impaired are able to reach their full potential.
Below are links to a number of very useful resources from our colleagues across the sector.
The Sight Advice FAQ is a comprehensive resource, answering questions about living with sight loss, eye health or being newly diagnosed with a sight condition. This includes those who are supporting people through their sight loss journey, including parents, partners, carers and friends.Visit website
The Sight Loss MOT is both a useful information resource for parents and carers and an assessment framework that enables professionals working in the Children and Young People’s Vision Impairment sector to support families they are working with.Visit website
