Activities Program

 

OUT OF THE BOX

Welcome to the OUT OF THE BOX activities – providing a fun, safe, and stimulating environment for young people from the age of 5 – 18 with sight loss. Our aim is to support our younger members to explore, learn and experience the world freely. The activities are designed to encourage confidence, independence and friendships in order to develop our future leaders.  Siblings are more than welcome to join in the fun too!

Our four focus categories:

Active;
Active fun and games do not only fight boredom but also challenge their minds and muscles without the barriers of sight loss.

Creative;
Creative activities help our young members to discovering new concepts and techniques, to develop their ideas and their understanding of the world.

Life skills;
Life skills will help our young members to stand on their own feet with sight loss, build their independence and help them to master skills that they’ll be able to use into adulthood.

Entrepreneurship;
Entrepreneurs take risks and inspire others to achieve big ideas. We teach our younger members to develop important life skills such as planning, teamwork and leadership.

Our services are accessible to those who live or attend schools within Croydon and takes place throughout the school holidays.
