Coronavirus: Resources – How We Can Support You

Coronavirus is causing serious concern for everyone. We are doing everything we can to continue to support all our VI young people and their families, through this difficult time.

At Look we are aware that Coronavirus is causing serious concern for everyone, in particular, those with underlying health needs. We want you to know that we are doing all we can to continue to support all our visually impaired young people and their families, through this difficult time. Our online mentoring service will be operating as usual, as will our phone line. 

We are taking the effort to reduce the spread of the disease extremely seriously. We are sorry to say that this means that we have made the decision to cancel ALL upcoming events. This is in line with the government’s request that we abstain from all essential social contact.


Please do follow us on Facebook @LOOKnational, on Twitter @LOOK_UK and on Instagram @look_uk – now, more than ever, it’s important that we stay connected. We’ll also be posting regular updates about our online events and all of our news. For a guaranteed weekly update of what’s happening at LOOK, head to our homepage to subscribe to our newsletter.

Get in touch

Do get in touch if you’d like to talk or you need support. We still are – and always will be – here for you. We know first-hand the impact that this is having on family life and our hearts go out to you all; particularly to families with children with more complex needs and underlying health conditions.

You can contact us through the usual channels: By phone on +44 (0) 7464 351 958 or by email:
