Support for you and your child, launching soon 

We offer learning opportunities and support for families; vital to every child with visual impairment during their earliest years of development.

Your family needs emotional and practical support to guide you through the first stages and beyond of learning that your child has a visual impairment. That's where we can come in.

We're here to chat with you to identify your family's concerns and needs – from advice and information and  activities to help your child reach their potential, to meeting other families coping with similar challenges.

Get in touch if you need a helping hand, and sign up to be the first to hear about our new services for families with young children.

Our Early Support Group will be based at the Royal Blind School in Edinburgh. 

Our weekly group learning sessions will enable children to participate in sensory, language and play activities whilst parents meet other parents in a social setting. It will be a hub of information and support for the whole family. 

Thanks to our generous supporters, we will be able to offer these sessions free of charge to families with children aged from birth to five years old. 

Together, we'll address challenges and focus on encouraging your child's strengths, supporting them to blossom.
