Does your visually impaired child dread their PE lessons in mainstream school, is it hard for them to access clubs in the community and be fully included? Or do you have a VI child who enjoys sport and wants to be more involved? This free resource is for you!
British Blind Sport teamed up with our Parent Support Group to offer this free, online information session for parents and carers of visually impaired (VI) children and young people. We were joined by a brilliant panel of VI athletes.

Notes and links, and more about each of the panel members are on the full resource here.
During the information session panel members shared practical tips on how to succeed and information on how to find what is available around the UK. From blind football, goalball, running, athletics, karate, cricket, swimming… access to any sport should be possible with the right knowledge, attitude, equipment, and training. We know sport can be adapted to fully include blind and partially sighted people. Sometimes the best experiences are when you can compete with and against others with Vision Impairment on a level playing field.
Parent Support Group
Our free, fortnightly peer-led Parent Support Group is a safe place to meet others and talk about the issues our visually impaired children face and share solutions that others in the community have found. The group is organised by Jane Ring, Parent Support Officer at LOOK. Find out more in the link below.
