Empowering blind children , young adults and families
We know that navigating life with a visually impaired child can be difficult and confusing. Our aim for this Portal is to be a one stop information hub for all parents and carers raising a child who is blind or partially sighted.
We have therefore started our ‘Parent Network’. The aim of this project is to empower parents to support and advise one another, and run local events and groups to create networks of parents across the country. Our Parent Ambassadors that are part of this new scheme have first-hand experience living with and raising children who have a visual impairment. We believe that these are the people best placed to provide help and advice if you do have any concerns or encounter any problems.
To this end, we have a VICTA Parent Network Facebook group. This is a safe space for you as a parent to ask any questions or seek advice on any topic related to parenting a visually impaired child. Other parents and young adults in the group will provide answers, support and encouragement.
