Vision England – residential of a lifetime for young visually impaired

FSC is working with RNIB on a fantastic initiative welcoming 14-17 year olds with vision impairment to attend a series of exciting and beneficial residentials each year.

The residential experiences enable the young people to meet others and make new friends, develop their confidence and skills while taking part in a wide range of outdoor adventure and conservation activities. The leaflet here has more information.

The sign up deadline for 2018 is 22nd January 2018, to take part in this opportunity visit: www.rnib.org.uk/vision-england
