Young adults social group

The group was set up specifically to support young adults with their transition into adulthood.

Regular get-togethers are available for this group. Members meet with other partially sighted young adults living in Berkshire, this gives them a sense of friendship and takes the isolation away from how they may feel.

Parents, carers or friends are welcome, or to promote independence wherever possible, we can provide DBS checked volunteers to offer support.

We also encourage group members to organise their own activities, with support from us only when requested.

Some examples of outings and activities include group mini-breaks, theatre trips with behind-the-scenes tours, cookery sessions, meals out, animal encounters, concerts, discos, bowling etc. The range of activities are similar to the children’s groups but we have recognised with experience that this particular age group benefit from being together, it also allows a more focussed approach to their care.
