Student Support Service

Our Student Support Service is here for blind and partially sighted students aged 11+, their families and the professionals that support them. We provide expert advice, information and guidance supporting students to navigate secondary school, college and university.

We are an England based service but can offer general advice and signposting to people from other parts of the United Kingdom.

We hope that you can find most of the information you are looking for on our dedicated secondary school, college and university pages, but if you can’t or need more bespoke information then we can provide one-to-one information and support via our support service.

“I was not getting the right support at university. Without TPT intervening I do not think it would have been resolved. Thank you!”, a student who contacted our service.
