More About The Provider
Description of Service
Useful Vision is a registered charity providing positive opportunities, support, and accessible events for visually impaired children and their families across the North East.
Our huge range of imaginative activities, relaxed family events and skills workshops are designed to meet the needs of blind and partially sighted children of all ages and abilities.
We support children so that they can learn new skills and make new friends – reducing social isolation through increased confidence and self-esteem.
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.
Useful Vision visually impaired children get the most out of life. We run a range of activities across the region, to stimulate and entertain children from 0 - 18 with little or no vision, which at the same time are enjoyable for the rest of the family. All the activities are free to families registered with us. You can register for free online on our website or give the office a ring.
What are you currently offering in response to Covid-19?
We will re-open our office on the 7th of September, and will be planning our new activities, either online or in person and will be contacting all our families to get a picture of what is happening in the region.
