How can I meet other parents and families in a similar situation?

We have a team of Children, Young People and Family (CYPF) Co-ordinators, who can tell you about parent-led support groups in your area. They also run a range of family weekends, family days, multi-activity clubs and groups for children and families. 

Further information including insight and guidance provided by parents who have already been through the experience, can be found on our resources for parents of blind or partially sighted children web pages.

You can also visit general parent support groups on the web such as mumsnet or netmums, which often have parents in live conversation, discussing problems,sharing ideas and supporting each other.
