Supporting parents and families in Northern Ireland

Angel Eyes NI is a charity started by parents to help families throughout Northern Ireland who have a child who is blind or partially sighted.

Since we were founded in 2007 we have grown rapidly to meet the needs of our community.

We support you, as parents and carers with blind and partially sighted children, from the point of diagnosis. We provide you with the tools and knowledge to empower you to make informed decisions for your children, and to help them realise their full potential.

How we help you:

  • To help the whole family come to terms with diagnosis

  • To demystify the roles of professionals, who they are and what they do

  • To help families understand support that is available and how to access it

  • To link families together for peer support at the same stage

  • To offer support to parents at every stage of their child’s life

  • To advocate of behalf of families of sight impaired children

  • To strive to make the voice of parents heard by statutory and other organisations that represent the interests of children in Northern Ireland who are visually impaired

  • To organise events, some on our own, some with other organisations, to provide information to families and/or to provide a safe, supported environment where children can acquire new skills and experiences

  • Monthly Clubs for families including Saturday Club, InTune and Braille Network
