Like all children, young people with sight loss or visual impairment have a variety of hopes and dreams. Our job is to make sure they have equality of dreams. You can help us ensure that all children with sight loss grow up to be independent and to fully participate in society.

Some of our children want to become superstars others dream of simply growing up and finding the job of their dreams. With your help, we can continue to provide these extraordinary children with the strategies and skills they need to realise and reach their potential.

They can achieve anything -
don’t let sight loss impede their dreams.

let's make it shine...
