VICTA (Visually Impaired Children Taking Action)

Improving the lives of children and young people who are blind or partially sighted

(up to 29yrs)

VICTA supports children and young people who are blind or partially sighted and their families across the UK. If you are the parent of a blind or partially sighted child or young person or you are visually impaired yourself and under the age of 29 then VICTA can help.

 

VICTA Activities

VICTA organises activities for children and young people who are blind or partially sighted and their families. The activities are designed to improve the emotional, social and living skills of the children and young people that we support. Not only are they fun they are also aimed at helping young people to develop new skills and gain confidence and life experience. Bringing children and young people who are blind or partially sighted together to socialise, have fun, try new things and travel, whether in the UK or abroad, VICTA helps them to realise just what they can achieve. 

 

VICTA Grants

VICTA makes grants available to enable children and young people to reach their full potential. Whether it is for a Brailler or a computer to help them keep in touch, we want everyone to have the opportunity to learn and grow. We want to encourage children and young people to develop independent life skills and therefore provide grants for equipment such as talking household items, magnifiers, navigation aids and activity breaks. With the right support, we believe everyone can develop the confidence to take their place in the world.

Applications will be considered for children and young people who are registered or are register-able blind or partially sighted up to and including the age of 29 years and who are permanent residents in the UK. All items supplied through our grant scheme are for home use only (not for school or college).
