Moorvision provides a supportive environment, information and a chance to get together for anyone in or around Devon, Plymouth and Torbay caring for a child or young person (0 - 25yrs) who has a visual impairment or other recognised eye condition. It is also open to visually impaired parents of either visually impaired or fully sighted children.
Many families with visually impaired children, young people or parents don't know anyone else in the same position and it can be a lonely experience. The group, which is run by a voluntary committee, has regular family days out, a yearly residential trip away, parent/carer evening meetings and sends out 3 newsletters a year packed with useful information. It offers a chance to get together and talk about all issues of caring for a visually impaired child or being a visually impaired parent.
Fridays 103.0-12, sensory sessions and alternate weeks hydrotherapy for children 0 - 3 years old who have a visual impairment together with their parents/carers.
