Young Voices

Young Voices is a group of volunteers from across England, aged 11 – 18, who want to bring about positive change for their communities.

They meet once a month to talk about their experiences and work on projects that matter to them and that will make a difference to the lives of other blind and partially sighted young people.

Our volunteers are a voice for blind and partially sighted children and young people. They inform and educate society by challenging negative perceptions of visual impairment and advocating for positive change at a local and national level.

Young Voices will make a difference by working to improve experiences within education, employment and engagement whilst also helping young people support health and wellbeing in the VI community, making sure communities are inclusive and helping young people who are blind and partially sighted to develop life and employment skills.


We believe:

Every young person with a visual impairment should receive and experience a good education and feel empowered in an inclusive society.
