On the 4th April we were delighted to welcome Lord Blackwell from Lloyds Banking Group to our offices. He spent the afternoon meeting some of our families and children and even had a go on our new VR headsets. This helped him to understand how our visually impaired children see the world around them. Lord Blackwell was able to chat with parents and families and find out how a visual impairment impacts their child’s life.
