Coronavirus: How we are helping parents of children and young people with vision impairment

The combined impact of school closures, social distancing and self-isolation presents unique challenges to our community and RNIB is doing all it can to help the parents of children and young people with vision impairment.

Our Children, Young People and Families (CYPF) team in our Sight Loss Advice Service are available to support with advice and information, so please call them on 0303 123 9999 or email [email protected].

We have compiled a list of some of the most frequently asked questions by parents on Sight Advice FAQ, the website that answers questions about eye health and living with a vision impairment.

See our answers on Sight Advice FAQ

If you have any questions or queries for our CYPF team, please post on our Parents and Carers Facebook page or email the team at [email protected] using the subject “How RNIB can help”.
