RNIB Shape and Share events bring children, young people and their families together for peer support, to share experiences and take part in fun activities both in person across the UK and virtually via Microsoft Teams.

Each event offers:

  • A chance to meet other families

  • Activities, games or crafts for younger children

  • Engagement opportunities for young people

  • Support, information and discussion for families on a range of topics relating to everyday life at home, education, transitions, social life and leisure, mobility and independence

  • Opportunities to have your say, shape and get involved in local and national campaigns

  • Information about wider services from RNIB and partner organisations.

All children and young people aged 0-25, their siblings, parents and family members are welcome to attend.
