VICTA

Description

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. Our programme of activities include Family Weekends, Family Days and Early Years Days, all designed to encourage parent support networks, provide information and improve the emotional, social and living skills of the children and young adults we support. Once your child reaches the age of 14, they can grow in confidence and gain independence by attending our residential activities and international opportunities. Visit our website for pre-teen activities (10 to 13), youth support (14 to 17) and young adults (18 to 29) to find out more.

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).
