Would your child like a German pen friend?

Thanks to our partnership with the German Nystagmus Network, we can now offer children and young people, who have nystagmus, living in the UK, the chance to make friends with someone in Germany.

If your son or daughter would like to send and receive postcards and letters, please complete the form below.

Through our partnership with the German Nystagmus Network we are offering UK families the chance to build friendships with German families. Each charity will provide the other with a list of children looking for pen friends. This list will include only the first name, age and town where they live. When a match is found we will contact the parents by email to ask for their permission to share their child’s surname and address with the other family. No contact details will be kept on file after the match is made.

Wobbly Eyes in German

The Nystagmus Network UK sends huge congratulations to Hanna and her fellow trustees for the successful launch, at the end of 2018, of the German Nystagmus Netzwerk.

Our two organisations are working closely together to ensure that information and support is available for German speakers everywhere, affected by nystagmus.

To this end, today we celebrate the publication of ”Wackelige Augen”, the German translation of our very own booklet for children, Wobbly Eyes.

Hanna came along to our Open Day in September 2018. You can read her report, here.
