Help us build a bright future for children and young people with vision impairment

We want all children and young people with vision impairment to thrive, learn and achieve a successful future.

But we're concerned that the system of support for children and young people with vision impairment in England is disintegrating.  We're worried that too many children are missing out on fulfilling their potential because local authorities are failing to meet their needs.  

Children and young people with vision impairment have the potential to learn, achieve and thrive alongside their sighted peers, but are being let down by lack of support to access the curriculum and learn vital social, communication and mobility skills. 

From babies and young children to teenagers and young adults, we want the right provision when it comes to education, habilitation and transitions. 

Tell us your story!

If you’re a young person with vision impairment, a parent or professional we want to hear from you. Share your experiences and help us plan a new campaign to ensure every child and young person with vision impairment gets the support they need.
