Our Youth Forums are an online space to entertain, support and empower visually impaired young people aged from 11 to 16-years-old.

Join us every other Wednesday at 6pm to chat with fellow VI young people, make new friends and enjoy an hour of fun and laughter with others.

Let us know what you want and we’ll make it happen! Whether it’s chatting with friends, getting creative, or being active; this is a space for you, led by you.

LOOK Youth Forums are hosted by our LOOK Mentors – visually impaired young adults who offer support, advice and information based on their own lived experience of being visually impaired.

Meet the Youth Forum Mentors!

Hi I’m Saima, I’m 23 years old and I absolutely love cooking. An interesting fact about me is that I once had my picture taken with a snake around my neck!

Hi I’m Nathan, I’ve been a LOOK Mentor for just over a year and my interesting fact is that I am the founder of Blind Ice Hockey UK.

Craig:

Hi I’m Craig, I’ve been a LOOK Mentor since March 2018 and my interesting fact is that I have a brown belt in Jujitsu.

Mariam:

Hi I’m Mariam, I’m 26 years old and an interesting fact about me is that I once swam in a fresh water lake and later found out there was a crocodile not too far away!
