About Look

We are Look, and we’re on a mission to support young visually impaired people and their families to thrive. We do this through mentoring, transformational events, youth forums and parent support groups.

We can also link to other charities and organisations who can help you access the support you need.

Our Vision

Our vision is a world where all young blind and partially sighted people are valued, included and can fulfil their potential.

Young visually impaired people and their families are empowered to speak up about their needs and rights.

They feel confident and connected to their peer group and communities – and have the support, tools and opportunities to thrive. 

Imagine More for Your Future

We are the leading mentoring organisation in the UK for visually impaired young people. Mentoring can help increase your confidence, learn new skills and make new connections.

Our Mentoring Program

Find a Mentor

If you’re aged 11-29 and at school, university / college or looking for work, we have a mentor ready to help you achieve your potential. Sign up to be matched to a mentor, and start chatting about anything relating to your visual impairment.

Become a Mentor

Are you visually impaired, 18-29 and have a passion to help others? Have you learned hacks along the way that can help other young people with a visual impairment? If you are proud of your difference and have some wisdom to share, then we’d love to hear from you.

Our Story So Far...

Over 25 years of supporting families with visually impaired children.

Look has come a long way since it was first dreamed up by three parents determined to spare others the struggle of navigating the world of visual impairment alone.
