Support for the young


Support for children and young people who have special educational needs or who are disabled can make a huge difference to their lives and those of their families.

The Government plans to make changes to this vital support but hasn’t fully recognised the needs of children and young people with sight loss and the kind of support they need. The Children and Families Bill is being discussed by MPs now. I am sure I won’t be alone in being very worried about the impact these changes will have on children with a visual impairment in our area who rely on the support of local services. The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) is keen to hear from anyone who may be affected or is interested in finding out more. Get involved and voice your concerns by contacting
