In 2017, we received a transformational grant from The Queen’s Trust, which kickstarted our success and enabled us to launch our pioneering mentoring programme.
We are forever grateful for the support that Her Majesty and her charitable foundation have shown to LOOK, which has enabled visually impaired young people to find their voice and flourish.
We are honoured to have the ongoing support of the Mountbatten Family who believe in our mission to support young visually impaired people and their families to thrive, through mentoring, transformational events, youth forums and parent support groups.
A message from LOOK CEO Charlotte.
LOOK Mentoring programme.
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.
Thanks to the incredible support from The Queens Trust we were able to launch our peer-mentoring service. Connecting VI young people with a trained VI mentor to offer advice, support and guidance on subjects such as school, Further & Higher Education, careers and independent living, based on the mentor’s own experiences.
“Thanks to LOOK mentoring, my daughter has found her voice and realised that she was not ‘wrong’ but that the barriers she faced at school were not OK.
To acknowledge that her hearing and vision loss is part of her and be proud of herself is massive, it’s such a gift that mentoring gives.” Parent of LOOK Mentee.
We join the Royal Family and the nation in their grief and offer the Royal Family our heartfelt condolences.
Love the LOOK Family.
