Berkshire Vision 

(In November 2023 Reading Association for the Blind merged with Berkshire Vision).

We provide practical and friendly support, sport and activities to visually impaired children and adults, and their families in Berkshire. Helping to develop confidence and independence and the skills to navigate the world with safety and ease. 

Children, Young People and Families – benefit from the support we provide, getting involved in activities adapted to meet each young person’s needs and having the opportunities to develop friendships with other visually impaired young people. Our activities are run throughout the year, but particularly in the school holidays to offer families the opportunities for quality family time together or for respite or to meet up and enjoy some time with others in similar situations. Previous activities have included cooking, craft, tennis, footgolf, visits to Legoland and London Zoo. Future events planned include Blind football sessions, taster sports days, going to a local pantomime, indoor climbing centre lesson, trampolining and swimming. Membership of Berkshire Vision is free in 2021.
