Useful Vision is a registered charity providing positive opportunities and fun-packed events for blind or partially sighted children around the North East. We work with children and their families to give them the help they need to flourish.
Our Mission is to provide accessible, positive opportunities and activities to visually impaired children and their families throughout the North East region. We support children so that they can learn new skills and make new friends – reducing social isolation through increased confidence and self-esteem.About Useful Vision
As a key part of our service we offer practical advice and emotional support for children, siblings and families from early years through to young adulthood.
We’ve collected together some useful resources to provide help, assistance, and guidance for blind or visually impaired children and their families.Resources
