Family Focus Interim Evaluation 2018

Family Focus is a new initiative developed to offer intensive and tailored support and activities to increase children’s development, encourage strong family bonds, reduce isolation and help children reach their full potential. It proposed to do so through the provision of play-based habilitation, specialist mobility and independent living skills training and therapies for children with a visual impairment and parent to parent peer support.

Delivered by three leading visual impairment charities and support providers (Guide Dogs NI, as project lead, in association with Angel Eyes NI and Sense NI) Family Focus also provides parental and family support through peer sharing, signposting and targeted Time to Play and Coffee & Chat family events across NI.
