Many children who have lost their sight, or are losing it, can become withdrawn or find it difficult to communicate. Having the opportunity to have fun, socialise and make new friends is an important part of staying connected with the rest of society. Support and advice for the family is also important. That’s what our children’s service provides.
Beacon Youth Club
The Beacon Youth Club is the only club of its kind in the Black Country that provides out of school activities for children with sight loss.
30 children a week aged 5 to 18 years old attend each week. They can take part in variety of activities, such as arts and crafts, table games, indoor football and pool. We also go out on outings to local attractions, including trips to bowling and parks.
The club runs every Wednesday from 6.30 to 8pm. We provide door-to-door transport for every visually impaired child and one friend or sibling.
