Activities and family events

With the right support, families and children with sight loss, can take part in activities, socialise and have fun growing up and feeling included.

Children and families service

We have a team of Children, Young People and Family (CYPF) Coordinators who offer information and advice for parents and run a range of family weekends, family days, actionnaires, multi-activity clubs and groups for children and families.

  • Actionnaires are clubs that operate across England on a regular basis (weekly, fortnightly or monthly) for blind and partially sighted children aged 4-16 and their siblings.
  • Activity breaks are residential holidays for blind and partially sighted children and young people aged 8-17, who attend mainstream schools. The breaks usually taking place during the school summer holidays. The purpose of the holiday is for the young person to try new activities, develop independence and enjoy spending time with other people who also have visual impairment.
  • Browse the activities and residentials for children and young people.
