How We Started
By Rebecca Wilson, Trustee and Founder
Our late son, Ben Wilson, was the inspiration behind Useful Vision when he went blind at the age of 5. Like many parents we had a lot of questions, very little support and found it difficult to locate activities that would stimulate and entertain Ben.
By establishing Useful Vision we want to make access to these things easier for other families of blind and partially sighted children and their siblings across the North East.
Today we’re helping hundreds of families across Northumberland, Tyne and Wear and Teesside.
We’re here for support, to help answer your questions advice and, most important of all, to give vision impaired children the very best days out, ever!
