Spring Event Programme
Following on from the amazing success of our virtual events in the past two years, we can now announce that we will be running some events in person this year. More details will follow on these shortly and we will also run some virtual events side by side so the whole of the UK can get involved, no matter where you are.
These events are aimed at the whole family. If you have queries about the suitability of an event for your child, please contact us.
Please note that during our virtual events we may take screenshot images or recordings of the activities and participants, which may be featured in internal and external RNIB media. This will be fully explained during the event, including how you can opt out and not be featured. Your decision does not in any way affect your involvement in the event and we assure you that we will not use any footage or images without your consent.

Events in Wales
Thanks to a National Lottery Community Fund grant of £90,895, we are able to offer Shape and Share events to create an opportunity for children, young people and their families to come together for activities, parent education and engagement.
These events provide an opportunity for RNIB and partners to listen to children and young people about campaigning, developing priorities and supporting their needs.
Shape and Share events create an opportunity to expand, plan and develop our youth engagement across Wales in a regional and national context by putting the views and needs of young people at the heart of our programmes.
