How can I meet other parents and families in a similar situation?
We have a team of Children, Young People and Family (CYPF) Coordinators who work for Action for Blind People (part of RNIB Group). They can tell you about parent-led support groups in your area. They also run a range of family weekends, family days, actionnaires clubs, multi-activity clubs and groups for children and families.
Contact your local action team directly or call 0303 123 9999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if there isn't one in your area.
You can also look at our information for parents of blind or partially sighted children which includes the information that parents who have 'been there before' say they would have liked to have known when they were finding out about their child's situation.
