Volunteer Schools Project Support

Southampton Sight aims to support those with a sensory loss to reach their full potential. We do this by providing a range of social activities, information advice and guidance sessions and access to resources and experiences that they might not normally have access to.

This new project is designed to inform primary school children, through games, play and interesting tasks, about how sight loss affects people. How it impacts lives and how those with sight loss deal with the challenges.

They are designed and run by trained personnel supported by volunteers.
