Northamptonshire Association For The Blind,
Our Children and Family Service provides practical advice, guidance and support to families from the moment a child is diagnosed, through each key stage of their development up until the age of 19.
Our vision is a world where children who are blind and partially sighted are able to realise their aspirations, achieve their maximum potential and reach their goals.
How we can help:
Family Support; immediate and ongoing specialist advice and information over the telephone or in the home.

Advocacy Support; expert advice and representation from both local and national organisations.
