Welcome to LOOK…

LOOK-UK supports young people and families living with a vision impairment

Are you a young person up to the age of 29 and have a vision impairment, or are you a parent of a vision impaired child? Then we want to hear from you.

LOOK is here to help you improve your self-confidence, develop skills and make new connections.

WE do this through:

  • LOOK Mentoring project – become a mentor or find a mentor.
  • LOOK Skype chat groups – connect with others and share experiences.
  • LOOK youth forums – make new friends and exchange ideas.
  • LOOK voices – get your voice heard and become part of our creative team. We are looking for bloggers, vloggers and, for our podcasts, roving reporters.
  • LOOK leadership events – come and broaden your horizons.


We support young people to:

  • Feel listened to and understood
  • Gain independence, life skills and training
  • Learn to work as a team
  • Improve wellbeing
  • Develop confidence and resilience.
  • Make connections
