Younger Generations Project

The Younger Generations project is for children and young people aged 0-19 living with a visual impairment.

Our aim is to provide opportunities for visually impaired children and young people, such as running activities which may not always be provided and available ordinarily. 

We hope to be able to set up regular meetings, maybe monthly for the children to meet up and socialise with children who may be in a similar situation to themselves. These meetings may involve trips to the cinema or local restaurants and provide an opportunity to discuss future events and hear exactly what the children and young people would like to do before planning takes place.
