Connecting Families Group

Sometimes, it helps to talk to someone in the same position as you.

Our Connecting Parents Facebook group brings together parents and carers of visually impaired children and young people so that they have a safe space to share and support each other.

If you’re interested in joining this group, be sure to read our Facebook group policy and rules before joining the group below.
