We are looking for volunteers to take part in our study called: What shapes quality of life of visually impaired children and young people.
What is the study about?
We aim to find out what helps children and young people with visual impairment and their families adjust to living with impaired eyesight and helps them have a good quality of life. We hope this will help us to develop and improve care and support for families of children and young people with visual impairment. To do this, we are inviting children and young people with visual impairment and their families to take part in our study.
What would I need to do?
Taking part in this study would involve both the child/young person with visual impairment and at least one of their parents/carers completing some questionnaires about topics like general health, well-being, and relationships with others.
Who are we looking for?
We would like to hear from you if you are
- Someone living in England or Wales
- 8 to 18 years old

OR you are
- Parent or caregiver of a child aged 8 to 18 years who has visual impairment
