As we the end of year, the team at LOOK are reflecting on our very busy 2023.

We delivered an amazing 88 events this past year, both online and face to face. Thanks to everyone involved: our team, our mentors and our wonderful parent carer steering group who help guide and create our parent support group events. You can read more the PSG a little later.

And we have an incredible 185 trained blind and partially sighted mentors and 180 mentees. 70 mentees are waiting to be matched with a mentor, and 30 mentors being trained in the New Year – our biggest ever mentor training cohort. It’s extraordinary to watch these mentor partnerships grow, and to witness the way everyone pulls together to help each other to be ambitious for the future and overcome the challenges faced along the way.

Here’s a Happy Christmas from our LOOK London mentors. Video shows LOOK London mentors plus Elin and Maria from LOOK mentor team, wearing Christmas jumpers and Christmas crowns standing in front of the Christmas tree at the Thomas Pocklington Trust hub.

Read more as look back on the last year in our December newsletter – it’s a long read, so make a Christmas cuppa and set aside some time to celebrate with us a rich and full year.
