Family and Carers

We support visually impaired people as well as their families and carers.

We offer advice and information on assistance, benefits, and support options available.


Being a carer can be demanding, so finding the time to look after your own wellbeing and health can be vital. To help look after yourself, it’s advisable to get a carer’s assessment. This gives you the chance to understand the impact of being a carer on your life, ways of managing your caring role, and help to find support services.

If you are a carer of a blind or visually impaired person in Oxfordshire, we encourage you to contact and register with Carers Oxfordshire as they provide a range of information and support to help carers with their demanding role. An adult carer is someone aged 18 or over with one or more people of any age relying on them for (unpaid) support. 


Here at MyVision we offer a range of groups and activities for blind and visually impaired children and welcome their families and carers along to our activities. If you would like to find out more about our events please visit our children and young people page. If you would like to speak to someone about your child, or ways of supporting them and their visual impairment, please get in touch with
