Helping Northamptonshire’s children and young people to be part of the Action

Our Children and Families Service provides practical advice, guidance and support to families from the moment a child is diagnosed, through each key stage of their development up until the age of 19.

Our Vision is a world where children who are blind and partially sighted are able to realise their aspirations, achieve their maximum potential and reach their goals.

  • Family Support – Immediate and ongoing specialist advice and information over the telephone or in the home.


  • Family / young people’s events – we organise “taster” days with local clubs and providers within a supported inclusive environment. We also organise excursions and social events for our younger visually impaired members and their families to come together and have fun!


  • Advocacy Support – expert advice and representation from both local and national organisations.


  • Sports and Leisure – practical advice and guidance about the availability of leisure services and activities in the county.

Upcoming Events:

We have two great events planned for members of our Children and Families Service this summer as they take to the snow slopes in
July followed by fun at the park in August (fingers crossed for hot weather).

• Thursday 26th July Sledging at Snozone, Milton Keynes.
• Wednesday 29th August Family Fun Day at Wicksteed Park, Kettering.
