Visually Impaired Children Taking Action (VICTA)

Description:

Visually impaired Children taking Action (VICTA) supports children and young people who are blind or partially sighted from 0 to 29 years across the UK.

They arrange activities designed to improve the emotional, social and living skills of the children and young people that they support.  Activities include youth weekends for 14 to 17 years and 18 to 29 years, family weekends for 5 to 18 year olds and their families, international trips, early years weekends for 0 to 5 year olds and a variety of family days.

VICTA makes grants available for items such as Braillers, magnifiers and computers to enable children and young people who are blind or partially sighted to reach their full potential.  VICTA also runs a parent support site:  www.throughscarlettseyes.com.  This platform allows parents who are dealing with the day-to-day issues of looking after a visually impaired child to come together and support each other.

For more information on how VICTA can help, please follow the link visit their website.
