Guide Dogs - Recreational Activities
The events, specifically arranged for children with a vision impairment and their families, around the UK, are a great way for families to take a break and meet others in a similar situation, in a safe and secure environment.
Relaxing and having fun can encourage children with sight loss to develop confidence and make new friends.
Representatives of our children’s services teams are present at each event to offer support and discuss any areas of concern you may have regarding your child’s vision impairment.
Children with a vision impairment plus one parent/guardian go free to most events and there is a small charge for immediate family members.
See the website for a calendar of events.
Events include trips to:
- the pantomime
- Easter, Summer and Christmas parties
- a family weekend for families with a child recently diagnosed with a vision impairment
- family guide dog experience days
- events in partnership with other charities
