Who are we?

Access Unlimited is a new programme funded by the National Lottery Community Fund. The Royal Society of Blind Children (RSBC) are working across England in partnership with the National Network of Regional Youth Units, Kent Association for the Blind, Albion Foundation, Young Bristol and Henshaws.

 Aiming higher for children and young people:

In particular:

  • To work together to promote equality, inclusion and diversity, both in terms of access to youth work services in England, and in relation to the role that youth work services can play in proactively challenging discriminatory attitudes and behaviours within society.
  • To build on its commitment to support and develop the youth work profession with a career structure offering progression.

What is the training about?

This is a free interactive, online, three-hour training course, where you will gain the knowledge and confidence to be able to include blind and partially sighted children and young people into your provision. This includes local youth clubs, activities, sports sessions or anything else that welcomes children and young people to your provision.

What will I learn?

You will learn about common eye conditions and their impact on the individual, as well as myth-busting around sight loss. You will learn key guidance around how to make your clubs, activities and sessions VI (vision impaired) friendly.

There will be an opportunity to gain practical understanding of adapting virtual and physical activities to make them inclusive to children and young people with sight loss.

The Qualification:

Participation in the Capacity Building Training will enable you to access the opportunity for a formal accredited qualification in Youth Work and working with VI Young People.

Is the training for me?

This course is for anyone delivering services for children and young people. You might be a youth worker, volunteer, a young person or anyone with a role working directly with children and young people.
