We operate an open referral policy. Once a referral is received the case is discussed by the team to determine whether it is accepted. Levels of support offered to individual children and young people will be guided by the nature & severity of their visual impairment. One of our team will visit your home or arrange to meet you and talk to you about any support or equipment that you may need.
A referral can be made by health professionals, schools or a parent.
