Who we are
Useful Vision is a registered charity providing accessible opportunities and activities to vision impaired children and their families, throughout the North East region. Our mission is to help children learn new skills and make new friends, reducing social isolation through increased confidence and self-esteem. The activities we organise are always designed to meet the needs of vision impaired children of all ages and abilities, whilst at the same time offering an enjoyable experience for siblings, parents and carers. As well as organising imaginative activities for families, we also provide specialist skills workshops and lessons for vision impaired children. Our skills workshops and lessons encourage vision impaired children to learn new skills and gain confidence in all aspects of their daily living and social life, promoting independence. Useful Vision also offers an informal information and advice service for families affected by a child's sight loss.
