iWill is our mentoring and engagement programme for visually impaired young people (10-16) in Herefordshire and the surrounding areas. It’s part of the wider iWill movement that supports and empowers children and young people to make a positive difference on the issues that affect their lives, their communities, and broader society.

Through a range of workshops, activities and social events, the project is an opportunity to embrace new skills, explore self advocacy and identify what’s truly important as VI young people, with the aim of boosting confidence and increasing participation in local communities.

What’s Next?

Our next #IWill event at Herefordshire Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) on Friday 5th April from 12.30-2pm

It’s a chance for young people to get together and enjoy the power and calmness that being around ponies brings.  We will be learning how to look after the ponies, grooming them and helping to get their stables ready and comfortable for the day.  There will also be a chance to ‘ride’ a mechanical horse that is used when learners first start riding to gain their confidence with movement. 

Spaces are very limited and due to this we are saving the places for VI young people first before we open it out to friends and family. 

Simply drop Claire an email at claire@look-uk.org to register your interest.
