Children, young people & families

We believe with the right support, blind and partially sighted children and young people have the same potential to participate, achieve and thrive in education and wider society as their fully sighted peers.

What we are doing

For families:

Starting Point
To ensure parents and carers get the information they need to access post-diagnosis support, we have worked with our partners to produce the Starting Point leaflet. Download it here.

Sight advice FAQ
The Sight Advice FAQ portal covers topics including pre-school child development, in-school support, reasonable adjustments, benefit entitlement and mobility. Access it here.

For professionals and local organisations:

Service development support
We work with other charities to help families with blind or partially sighted children receive the specialist advice, guidance and services they need. If you would like bespoke support to develop a CYPF service or to get involved please email us:
