Upcoming Sessions

Our Parent Carer Support groups for November are as follows:

Education Rights

November 23rd 19:30 – 21:00

Two expert parents and two fantastic LOOK mentors will be sharing insights into what we can do to support our children with Visual Impairment as they progress through education. What should they be entitled to in terms of advisory teacher input, teaching assistants, accessible resources, and inclusion into all aspects of school life? We will discuss EHCPs and annual reviews, the rights of your child to share their views and how to ensure they flourish in the right setting that will meet their needs.


Find out from Laura Hughes (Executive Director of Moorvision, friend of LOOK UK) and Anthea Aggus (active member of the LOOK parent carer support group) how to successfully navigate the complex SEND system.

Our two mentors will be able to bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the meeting. Chris Styles is a LOOK Mentor and newly qualified primary teacher working in a primary school for learners with SEN. He is potentially interested in becoming a QTVI in the future. Rupert Mountjoy is a LOOK Mentor who has just started his role as a QTVI in the Norfolk team. They will talk to us about their experiences throughout education. They will explain how they accessed their learning and navigated the education system as well as give their current perspective as teachers.

We look forward to welcoming you to this informative event. Please note both new and returning parent carers will need to register. This helps us plan the event and send any questions in advance to the panel. To book please follow this link to the Eventbrite page and choose November 23rd from the dropdown menu.

Please note: there will be no PSG on November the 9th.


Come and talk about your experiences of supporting your Visually Impaired children and helping them navigate the very visual world we live in. Share your feelings, frustrations, ideas and coping strategies. You don’t have to feel stuck or on your own, our growing community of parent carers want to listen, support, offer advice and reassurance.

Let us know what questions you may have and what topics you’d like to discuss?

Tell us what information or advice you need – we will get it for you!

Or just come and have a listen and a friendly chat with people who are in the same boat as you.

Be a part of LOOK’s supportive community.

Please email any topics and questions that you’d like covered to parentsupport@look-uk.org.

To all professionals or organisations who would like to take part in these chats and offer support to our community of parents, please contact parentsupport@look-uk.org

See you on Tuesday!
