Guide Dogs NI

Hundreds of children and young people across Northern Ireland are living with sight loss, but many of them are not getting the support they need.

Across Northern Ireland we are focussed on providing Habilitation through our Movement Matters service – training that helps children with sight loss to develop orientation and independence skills.

For more information on how we can help your family please contact the team by calling or emailing belfast@guidedogs.org.uk

RNIB NI

RNIB Northern Ireland provides support for children, young people and families to enjoy the same rights, responsibilities, opportunities and quality of life as those with full sight. We support children and young people aged 0-25 throughout their sight loss journey. We provide emotional support to parents and carers, information and advice, child and family events, confidence and skills building residentials for young people and specialist family weekends and therapies for children with sight loss and complex needs.   Our “Eyewise” programme for schools educates sighted children about sight loss and eye health.
