At RSBC, we want every blind child and their family to have the skills and confidence to live their life without limits. By helping children and young people to develop the essential skills to take control of their life, they can unleash their true potential.
Our focus is to make sure that blind and partially sighted children have the support they need. Our services reach across England and Wales, with a range of support and activities to meet families’ needs. Working with children, young people and their whole family from birth to 25 we have vital bespoke support services, activities, family events, an employment service, and an assistive technology services.
RSBC’s Dorton College is our independent specialist college offering a day provision for vision impaired 16-25-year-olds. Many of our students also have additional needs. We are the only independent specialist further education provider for vision impaired young people in the South East and offer access to a wide range of courses, ranging from Entry Level to Level 3 qualifications. These are studied alongside our bespoke specialist VI curriculum and supported by specialist staff.
We are delighted to be a sponsor of the CVRS conference in 2023 focusing on ‘Child Vision and Visual Impairment – Advances in Science and Related Practice’, as that research is so vital to the children and families we support.
