Story

Look has come a long way since it was first dreamed up by three parents determined to spare others the struggle of navigating the world of visual impairment alone.

Our vision is a world where all young blind and partially sighted people are valued, included and can fulfil their potential.

Young visually impaired people and their families are empowered to speak up about their needs and rights.

They feel confident and connected to their peer group and communities and have the support, tools and opportunities to thrive.

Your fundraising money has a life-changing impact on the young people that we help.

Just £50 will pay for an hour of counselling for a recently diagnosed young person or parent.

£100 will pay for our staff and mentors to deliver a World of Difference workshop in a VI young persons school.

£200 will pay for a visually impaired young person to attend our 3 day festival LOOKFest.

£250 will pay to train a visually impaired mentor.

£400 pays for a years worth of regular, structured weekly mentoring support for a young person from a trained VI mentor and look staff.

£800 will pay for a child to attend our week-long residential independence summer school at Jamies Farm.

£1000 will pay to train a visually impaired mentor as a forest school leader leading directly to real job opportunities.

Its only with your generous support that we can continue to help visually impaired young people gain confidence and thrive.
