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

We have a team of Children, Young People and Family (CYPF) Coordinators. They 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.

Contact your local action team directly or contact our Helpline on:

For further information including insight and guidance provided by parents who have already been through the experience, see our information for parents of blind or partially sighted children pages.

You can also visit general parent support groups such as mumsnet or netmums, which often have parents in live conversation, discusssing their children who have sight loss.
