Respite Care For Children

I felt that I could not partake in the same leisure activities as my sighted counterparts. However, the Outlook Trust gave me a chance to feel “normal” and equal, for a weekend.

“I enjoyed all of the activities very much, especially sailing the yacht and driving the speedboat. I know that I would not have had the opportunity to do these things without going on this trip. It was great!”

I’ve met a lot of great people… the Trust have given me the opportunity to try so many activities… in a safe, family-style environment. The trips are all about having fun… instilling in me an “I can” attitude when trying new things.

I think the Outlook Trust is an incredible weekend to go on… I really enjoy being a part of the activities I would not have thought possible before.  Freya Shaw

Fun for blind children, respite for parentsWe provide respite care for children with disabilities through our residential activity weekends and holidays for blind and partially sighted children. As a parent or carer we know you need much needed respite from time to time, however, respite is not our overriding aim.

 

Our Priorities:

  1. Children return with greater confidence and independence.
  2. Exciting & fun adventure weekends & holidays for visually impaired children.
  3. Respite for parents and carers.

 

 

We find parents and carers not only benefit from the short term respite but your children return with the ability to take on challenges for themselves. Not only a great long term help for the parent/carer but a fantastic confidence builder for your child.

 

Having climbed a rock face or kayak’d across a lake, with support and expert supervision, tasks that once caused anxiousness or seemed impossible are tackled with confidence.

 

 

 

 

Many parents have been amazed by the transformation in their son or daughter when they return from an Outlook Trust activity break.

Blind Children Enjoying Sailing“My daughter Freya has been attending the Outlook trust now for over 3 years and in that time I have witnessed her confidence and independence flourish.

The Outlook Trust has given Freya the opportunity to explore more challenging outdoor pursuits which under normal circumstances and supervision, would not be readily accessible to her.  The friendly and professional staff ensure the children’s safety and wellbeing whilst not sacrificing the fun and enjoyment of some of the more demanding activities. At the end of these exciting weekends and holidays, I collect Freya and listen to her talk of new activities, daring pursuits and best of all, new friends!”  Stacey Shaw ( parent)
