  • This month we’re talking with parents of blind and partially sighted children and young people.  Why do families reach out for support and what support is there when they do?
  • Adele Alexander shares her story of how, as a family, the Alexanders deal with the challenges in having three boys partially sighted due to Albinism.
  • Sarah McCracken from Angel Eyes NI drops in to tell us what led to the setting up of the parent led sight loss support charity.
  • We hear from Guidedogs NI and RNIB Children and Families team at a Confidence Building residential in Newcastle Co. Down, it’s all about baked potatoes, bashing biscuits and fabulous fifteens apparently.
  • Josh and Nathan Hood take a break from swinging through the trees to talk about football, Duke of Edinburgh award and sight loss.
All that and, our usual 60 Second Share and What’s the craic features.
