A rich mix of local conversation, news and stories from local people, presented by the familiar voices of our current team: Michael, Sharon and Joe.
Craic On, produced by RNIB in Northern Ireland, features a rich mix of news and views from the sight loss community. Whether you’re affected by sight loss, are blind or partially sighted or you know someone who is, this is your podcast. Your voice, your stories, your lives! Formerly Sound Vision Online.
This month we’re talking with parents of blind and partially sighted children and young people. Why do families reach out for support and what support is there when they do?
Adele Alexander shares her story of how, as a family, the Alexanders deal with the challenges in having three boys partially sighted due to Albinism.
Sarah McCracken from Angel Eyes NI drops in to tell us what led to the setting up of the parent led sight loss support charity.
We hear from Guidedogs NI and RNIB Children and Families team at a Confidence Building residential in Newcastle Co. Down, it’s all about baked potatoes, bashing biscuits and fabulous fifteens apparently.
Josh and Nathan Hood take a break from swinging through the trees to talk about football, Duke of Edinburgh award and sight loss.
All that and, our usual 60 Second Share and What’s the craic features.
We want to hear your experiences of sight loss, your tips or life hacks. Get in touch with the team and together we can start a conversation. Why not record an interview with someone or record a comment or question and send the audio file to us to be part of the next podcast.
With your help we can make this podcast a place to discuss what it's really like living with sight loss, for everyone in Northern Ireland and beyond.
