Education and Student Support

We believe blind and partially sighted students should have the opportunity to thrive in their education.

This is why we are here. We work to improve outcomes for blind and partially sighted students to ensure they can overcome the barriers they face and reach their full potential.

We are passionate about making this change and work in the following ways to achieve our mission:

  • Providing high quality direct support to students, their families and the professionals supporting them through our Student Support Service.
  • Creating impactful resources students can use to get the information and guidance they need to navigate their education journey, via our dedicated resource pages for students at secondary school, college and university.
  • Support students to learn how technology can super-charge their education, with our Technology in education resources.
  • Put blind and partially sighted students at the heart of everything we do, supporting them to change their community and education, via our Young Voices and Student Voices, Student Stories and Student Transitions events.
  • Influence key decision-makers to improve access to education for blind and partially sighted students with our policy work.
  • Supporting professionals who work with blind and partially sighted students to improve their knowledge and expertise so they can provide a more effective service.
