Blind and partially sighted people, including children, are twice as likely to be inactive as sighted people. We want to ensure visually impaired children are given the same opportunities by making sports accessible and inclusive and to improve their life experiences.
Activities will include football, goalball, boccia, tennis and more. The aim is to allow children to access specialist equipment and to participate in a variety of different sports and to engage in activities in a safe environment where they can have freedom of movement andexpression.
Parents and carers are welcome to come along and spectate however places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
