Vision England, a Sense run (National Lottery Community Funded Project), supports young people and young adults to learn more about their environment by taking part in conservation activities like tree planting and coppicing and other activities like , hikingand hiking and camping – a fantastic opportunity to learn more about nature, as well as spending time with peers.

Below is Anna’s YouTube VLOG of her experience on Vision England last year!

Please note, to be eligible the young person must have a visual impairment. Due to the venue and the activities, the residentials are not suited for those with mobility needs. Priority goes to young people who haven’t been on Vision England before, however, please still apply as there may be spaces available nearer the time of the residential.

Young people will also have the opportunity to complete a John Muir certificate, which is an environmental qualification.

About the project:

Vision England is an exciting residential programme for young people aged 12 – 17 years with a vision impairment, in partnership with the Field Studies Council (FSC). Young people are supported to play a leading role in changing their communities and the environment for the better.

The residentials are great fun and a fantastic opportunity for young people to develop independence and learn new skills in a fun environment.  Activities include Walks, bush craft, hiking and camping, team building and an opportunity to gain a John Muir Award certificate (environmental award scheme).

To give you a little bit of info though, we hope that each young person will be; making new friends, taking part in teamwork, experiencing being away from home etc, working towards obtaining the John Muir Award.

There are lots of different activities which are varied so that it adapts to everyone’s needs. One thing I can guarantee is that everyone enjoys their time with us, it’s fun, interesting, challenging and I would be very surprised if they didn’t enjoy it.
