There are a number of organisations available to provide social and sports clubs, support groups, training and other activities. This support is available to children, their carers and family members.
Action for Blind People’s Actionnaire Clubs provide opportunities for blind and partially sighted children aged 4 to 16 to participate in sporting, leisure and social activities in a safe, structured and fun environment. They also provide a number of residential family weekends or week-long holidays.
