Vision England is an exciting residential programme for young people aged 11-24 years with vision impairment, in partnership with the Field Studies Council (FSC) and funded by the National Lottery Community Fund. Young people are supported to play a leading role in changing their communities and the environment for the better, as well as build their confidence and independence, learn new skills and make new friends. Young people shape the activities they do, which may include conservation activities like coppicing and tree planting, and other activities like wildlife walks, bush craft, hiking and camping.
